Dušan Kolarski studied Chemistry and obtained his B.Sc. degree at the University of Belgrade. He then pursued his M.Sc. studies at ETH Zürich in Switzerland in the group of Prof. Dr. François Diederich. As a master student, he also did an internship at Novartis Institute for BioMedical Research in Basel, Switzerland. In 2020, he obtained his Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ben L. Feringa at the University of Groningen, where they have developed the field of chronophotopharmacology. His research was focused on using photo-responsive small molecules to reversibly control the circadian clock in mammals by turning drugs` activity ‘on’ and ‘off’ with light.
