Dr Dragana Savic was awarded a Novo Nordisk Fellowship in October 2018 to study Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and what role oxidative stress and insulin resistance has on the progression of the disease.
She undertook her DPhil studies with Professor Damian Tyler investigating the functional and metabolic role of carnitine in the diabetic heart using hyperpolarised MRI at the Department of Physiology Anatomy and Genetics.
She holds a combined two-year master’s in Biomedical Engineering (Medicine and Technology) from the Technical University of Denmark and Copenhagen University. Her master’s thesis research was completed at Yale University, where she studied the effects of stiffening vessels on cardiac function.
Dragana is passionate about translating her research to the clinic. She has presented at several international conferences and holds a number of awards.
She is also involved in several entrepreneurial projects trying to make the world just a little better.
