In vivo and in vitro imaging of leukocyte responses during inflammation
Dr Ivetic is Senior Lecturer in the school of Cardiovascular Sciences at King’s College London and is Principal Investigator of the Membrane/Cytoskeleton Signalling Group.
Dr Ivetic graduated from Imperial College London with a BSc (Hons) in 1993 in Biochemistry and additionally became an Associate of the Royal College of Science. He then moved to the lab of Dr Sue Cotterill at the Marie Curie Research Institute (Oxted, Surrey), where, in association with the Institute of Cancer Research (University of London), he embarked on a PhD in Biochemistry to understand how DNA replication was controlled by the Cell Cycle. His first post-doctoral position was held at the National Institute for Medical Research (now the Crick Institute, London) where he worked with Dr Ann Ager and applied his expertise in protein biochemistry to the field of leukocyte adhesion and trafficking.
He then moved to the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (UCL branch, London) for his second postdoctoral position, where he worked with Prof. Anne Ridley and gained extensive knowledge in cell biology, with a main focus on leukocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. He then moved to the National Heart and Lung Institute at Imperial College London in 2005 as part of a Wellcome Trust Research Career Development Award, which enabled him to continue his interests in leukocyte trafficking, and to develop skills to analyse leukocyte behaviour in vitro and in vivo. He moved to King’s College London in 2009, where he holds a tenured HEFCE-funded position.
