About Zarko



I got my undergraduate degree from the University of Nis, Serbia, doing research on mathematical chemistry with Ivan Gutman and on isolation and analysis of secondary metabolites with Gordana Stojanovic.

For my PhD work I performed research at the UCSB chemistry with Bruce Lipshutz working primarily on copper hydride initiated reactions, catalysis, and stereoselective synthetic organic methods.

I continued postdoctoral research with Stuart Schreiber at the Broad Institute working on delineating molecular mechanism of action of several screening hits, and on design of new chemistry for diverse collections of complex small molecules.

I joined the faculty of the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Kansas in 2018.
