Dr. Vladimir Brusic is a Professor at Menzies Health Institute Queensland, Griffith University, Australia and Professor at the School of Medicine, Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan. He is also an Adjunct Professor at Department of Computer Science, Metropolitan College, Boston University. His long-standing research interests include study of the immune system, vaccine discovery, and the design of diagnostic methods and devices based on Omics and biomarker targeting. More recently, Dr. Brusic started developing the field of elemental metabolomics where elemental profiles are determined from biological samples and used for improvement of diagnosis, prognosis and intervention aimed at correcting developmental defects and control of chronic diseases. Dr. Brusic previously worked in Serbia (at University of Belgrade), Australia (at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute and at University of Queensland), Singapore (at Institute for Infocomm Research, at National University of Singapore, and at Nanyang Technological University) and USA (at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School). He conducted a pioneering work in the field of immunoinformatics. This work has enabled the use of computational models to improve the efficiency of screening of targets of immune responses by an order of magnitude and systematic screening of vaccine targets in infectious disease and cancer.
