Ivan Đikić

Professor Ivan Đikić is Director of the Institute of Biochemistry II at the Goethe University of Frankfurt, and Head of the Molecular Signaling Group, having developed relevant advances in the study of cellular signalling mecanisms.

Ivan Đikić has brilliantly demonstrated how ubiquitin, a small ubiquous protein, contributes to regulate a series of pathways in the inner cell. Author to numerous publications in international high impact scientific journals, has dramatically altered how Science sees this molecule. From proteossomal activity to selective autophagyregulation, his undoubtely relevant research is of great scientific interest. Thus, it is no wonder he has received more than a dozen prizes and awards such as The Order of Duke Branimir in 2010 and the 2013 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize.
