Snježana Jurić

Dr. Snježana Jurić currently works as a project advisor at the Ruđer Bošković Institute (RBI) in Zagreb, Croatia. Her scientific interests are strongly shaped around plant science; she is curious to discover how unknown proteins and protein interactions fit into the great fundamental processes, such as photosynthesis and flowering. Dr. Jurić completed her PhD thesis in Zagreb in 2010 and her postdoctoral study in Seoul under the mentorship of Prof. Ji Hoon Ahn, one of the world’s leading researchers in the genetics of flowering, in 2014. She published several peer-reviewed articles; one chapter in the book Electron Transfer Routes in Oxygenic Photosynthesis: Regulatory Mechanisms and New Perspectives, published by InTech; and two chapters in the book Methods in Molecular Biology, published by RBI. Dr. Jurić is also interested in the project-oriented funding and development of leadership skills in science; she qualified as a professional specialist of project management in 2014. When not exploring the fascinating world of plants, she is reading science fiction literature and writing theatre play scripts.

Undernourishment in some areas and abundance in others, accelerated climate changes, food distribution and security challenges, fluctuating economic and political stability and oversaturation in information - this is the world we are living in today. It seems that there is no time for the basic science plant research; instead of years of dedicated investigation, scientists are forced to wrap up their know-how in a project-oriented deliverables as fast as possible. The main strength of this book is the new knowledge about plant engineering that could be transferred into the applied science and, later on, to the industry. However, we should not forget that all great discoveries begin with the fundamental research, the wealth of good ideas and the dedicated scientific work.
