Dr Zinaida Dedeić

je dobitnica stipendije Nuffield Odeljenja za Medicinu (Nuffield Department of Medicine) na Univezitetu u Oksfordu za četvorogodišnje doktorske studije (2010-2014). Izučavala je genetičke i molekularne krivce za razvoj raka, sa ciljem da otkrije nove molekule koji snažno i selektivno moduliraju funkcije ciljanih proteina za efikasnije liječenje raka. Njen doktorski rad se uglavnom fokusirao na razvojne i tumorogene uloge iASPP proteina, koji reguliše funkciju glavnog genetičkog izazivača raka-takozvanog P53. Otkrila je da iASPP kontroliše integritet ćelijskih veza i da tako ima važnu ulogu za zaustavljanje širenja raka. Zinaidina želja je da pomogne u implementaciji jednog od ciljeva Ministarstva nauke, a to je da poboljša naučnu saradnju izmedju Crne Gore i evropskih zemalja, posebno Velike Britanije, i da doprinese boljem pozicioniranju crnogorske nauke. Isto, voljela bi da više naših studenata dobije šansu za usavršavanje na prestižnim svjetskim univerzitetima i da to znanje potom podijele sa zemljacima. Prije doktorskih studija, Zinaida se iz malenih Rožaja uputila u Sjedinjene Američke Države (SAD) da završi srednjoškolsko obrazovanje, a potom i osnovne i magistarske studije, obilazeći razne države u SAD-u i njihove prestižneuniverzitete.
