Aleksandra Kuzmanov

Natural Sciences
Assistant Professor

Dr. Aleksandra Kuzmanov joined LTU in the fall of 2017. She teaches Biology 1 and Cell Biology courses in the department of Natural Sciences. She earned an MD degree at the University of Belgrade School of Medicine (Serbia) in 2004. After practicing medicine for three years, Dr. Kuzmanov came to the US to study nutrition, and molecular and cellular biology. She received a master's degree in Human Nutrition in 2009 and a PhD in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences in 2014 from the University of Wyoming. Following her graduate studies, she spent three year as a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California, Davis before moving to LTU. Her research focuses on understanding the mechanisms that promote proper chromosome segregation during male meiosis using the model organism C. elegans. Chromosome segregation errors have an astounding impact on human reproductive health as a primary cause of infertility, recurrent miscarriage and developmental disabilities.
