In this month’s Presenting alumni section, we are welcoming Jelena Tica, an inspiring molecular biologist, scientist, traveler. Starting October 1st, she will be working for Johnson & Johnson, on clinical trials testing the Janssen Ad26.CoV2.S COVID-19 Vaccine. Besides her exciting career path, we will also look back at Jelena’s experience as S3 project leader and organizer.
Hi Alex, thank you for finding the time to join us for this interview. We are as happy to have you here in our Presenting Alumni session as we were to have you as a project leader in the last three editions of the S3 camp. Your career story is rather non-linear and filled with disappointing research outcomes, so I believe many young alumni will find it encouraging when they face similar things and decisions themselves. But first things first – how would you introduce yourself?
