Tamara Tomanic is a PhD student at Dementia Research Centre, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Macquarie University. Her research topic focuses on the functional dynamics of tropomyosin isoforms and actin in the postsynaptic compartment in relation to Alzheimer’s disease. Her interest in Neuroscience started early in her undergraduate studies which led her to research training within Multiple Sclerosis group, at the Institute für Neuroanatomie, RWTH University, Aachen, Germany in 2013, as a holder of DAAD scholarship. This research was incorporated into her MSc thesis titled: “The influence of pro-inflammatory factors on the expression of ENTPD2 in mouse oligodendrocytes”. She graduated with a Master’s degree from the Department of Molecular Biology and Physiology at the Faculty of Biology, University of Belgrade, Serbia in 2015. That same year she has been awarded Marie-Skłodowska Curie short-term fellowship within Neptune ITN to gain multidisciplinary experience in evo-devo and neurobiology of marine model animals at SARS International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway. What brought her to Dementia Research Centre is a keen enthusiasm towards the function and development of the brain, as well as their disruption in the disease.
