Dr Vujanovic obtained his M.D. and PhD degree from the University of Belgrade and postdoctoral training at the University of Paris, France. His main research interests are related to the mechanisms of cytotoxicity mediated by immune effector cells and their role in anticancer host defense. His studies include the interactions between TNF family ligands of immune effector cells and TNF family receptors of cancer cells, leading to apoptosis or survival of cancer cells.
