Dr. Catic was trained as an M.D. in Hematology and Oncology at the University of Ulm and the Charité Hospital before receiving his Ph.D. in Immunology from Harvard University.
Following his graduate studies, he joined the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute as an Instructor in Medicine to conduct research on transcriptional dynamics, protein quality control, and aging of hematopoietic stem cells. Dr. Catic joined the Huffington Center on Aging and the Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine Center at Baylor College of Medicine in 2014 as a CPRIT Scholar in Cancer Research.
His laboratory investigates how protein stability impacts gene regulation and cellular metabolism. The goal of this research is to understand, and eventually control, molecular mechanisms that are critical for aging and cancer.
