As the PhD thesis supervisor of Dr. Brankovic, I have worked closely with him during three years. I have come to know him as a highly dedicated, motivated and conscientious investigator. For the purpose of his PhD project, in a relatively short time-span, Dr. Brankovic acquired an in-depth knowledge of the research topic, which included renal dysfunction and heart failure, and he quickly mastered several highly sophisticated statistical techniques. During his work, Dr. Brankovic displayed a great deal of independency and creativity, and a high ability for troubleshooting. Moreover, he proved to be a team-player by helping his colleagues when needed and actively seeking collaborations. Altogether, I am confident that Dr. Brankovic has the ability to become a leader in clinical and translational research.

I met Dr Brankovic when he, as an excellent student of Faculty of Medicine, made his first research steps in my laboratory for research of redox homeostasis in health and diseases. He showed high motivation in research and exhibited very good presentation skills at several Biomedical Student’s Congresses. I also worked closely with Dr Brankovic, when he was member of Editorial Board and later appointed as Student Editor-in-Chief of the Journal Medical Youth. During this period Dr Brankovic was dedicated to the various improvements in the editorial policy of the Journal, first of all sharpening the quality of the revision process in terms of improving the objectivity and transparency. During his leadership in Journal he perfectly coordinated the whole team of student members of the Editorial Board. He also demonstrated good communication skills with the Advisory Board of the Journal comprising the members of the teaching staff of Faculty of Medicine. Altogether, I am confident that Dr. Brankovic has the ability to become a leader in clinical and translational research.
