Marijana Todorcevic


Postdoctoral researcher

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Metabolic Research Group at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (OCDEM). My research interests are focussed on the molecular and cellular control of human fat distribution and insulin resistance. I use a wide variety of techniques including knock down, over expression, RNAseq and immunocytochemistry to understand how gene variants associated with type 2 diabetes shape the cellular biology of human adipose tissue. This work will help us to understand the contribution of adipose tissue in maintaining metabolic health.

I supervise undergraduate medical students who are undertaking research projects in the division. I also organise and chair the OCDEM internal seminar series. I have a PhD in animal physiology and animal nutrition from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.  My thesis was in fatty acid metabolism and molecular genetics, applied to adipocyte biology of Atlantic salmon.  I have authored a number of publications and I have presented data at both national and international conferences. My PhD research has attracted funding from the Norwegian Research Council and FRIMEDBIO ('Toppforsk projects' in Medicine, Health Sciences and Biology).
