I am scientist with expertise in medical biochemistry and cellular and molecular biology. I graduated medical school but I continued with a cross-bridge in science in New Zealand. During cross-bridge, I graduated BSc (Hons) degree with a major in biochemistry at Lincoln University (New Zealand) in 1999. I graduated MSc and PhD degree in molecular and cellular Biology at University of Canterbury (New Zealand), 2002 and 2009, respectively. My research interest is on bioactive properties of natural products and novel compounds. So far, I worked with different series of amphibian peptides, phenylpropanoids, thiazolidines, thiazoles terpenes, canabinoids and phenothiazines as well as with plant essential oils. These compounds and oils have a broad range of activity ie., antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antibacterial, antiparasitic and antiviral activity. My work at Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine, is well presented in five frist author publications on phenylpropanoids, thiazolidines and thiazoles (h-index > 10, https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Ermin-Schadich-2). My previous work on amphibian peptides and bacterial globins is presented in ten different publications. For one of my publications on amphibian peptides, I received Kennedy Student Award from USA SAR Society in 2010. Since outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), my work is focused development of different measures against it. In addition to it, my work is also associated with testing of antimalarial activity of novel compounds.
