Damir Omerbasic is a Manager with Catenion and lives in Berlin.

During his time as a PhD student in Berlin, Damir studied evolutionary adaptations in naked mole-rats, African rodent species, that rendered this animal unresponsive to a variety of sensory stimuli. His research has led him to several field trips to South Africa and Tanzania to study these astonishing animals and their closest relatives from the African mole-rat family. In parallel to his post-doctoral research, Damir was an adjunct faculty at the Touro College Berlin, where he taught two courses at the undergraduate psychology program.

Damir is interested in scuba diving, astronomy and botany. However, in his free time, he can usually be found in his Schrebergarten, an allotment garden he shares with his family and friends.


After obtaining his undergraduate degree in molecular biology from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, Damir moved to Berlin, Germany to pursue his PhD studies. There he did his doctoral thesis at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC) in the field of molecular neurophysiology, followed by a post-doctoral research position in the field of proteomics.
