Ana has a PhD in Biochemistry with a focus on structural vaccinology from the University of Toronto. In her spare time she enjoys hiking up increasingly steeper hills.

Jovana Drinjakovic, PhD

Science Communications Officer at Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research

Jovana Drinjakovic is a science writer focusing on biology, health and medicine. By day, she works as a communications specialist at U of T’s Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, and occasionally moonlights as a reporter. Her reporting work has appeared in Mosaic Science, The Globe and Mail, National Post, VICE|Motherboard and others.

Jovana studied biology at the University of Oxford, earned a PhD from the University of Cambridge and is a former U of T Fellow in Global Journalism. After a decade of working as an experimentalist, and despite an uncanny talent for dissecting the brains of small animals, she decided it was more fun to write about other people’s discoveries. Raised in Belgrade, she lives in Toronto with a husband and two sons and has learned to love hockey.
