Croatian Among World’s Most Stylish Scientists

iva tolic_norrelykkeOne Croatian has made it onto Future-ish’s annual list of the world’s most stylish scientists. Zagreb’s Iva Tolić-Nørrelykke has been named on the list of world-changing stylish scientists.

“A lot of people think that real scientists need to focus on just their work and not worry about how they look or dress. I do not agree with that. I like nice clothes and my favourite designer is Custo from Barcelona. When I wear his colourful dresses I feel happy,” said Iva.

Tolić-Nørrelykke, who is a group leader at the Max-Planck-Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics,in Dresden, Germany, has been credited for a discovery which will become the basis for new and different cures for cancer. Tolic-Norrelykke discovered that filamentous proteins, which are responsible for dividing the chromosomes into two identical halves, do not grow directly toward the center of the chromosome, but wrap around the center of chromosomes. Tolić-Norrelykke observed in African yeast cells how microtubules make contact with the center of chromosomes.

“Unlike a simple ‘best dressed’ list, the Stylish Scientist List isn’t just about trends and expensive labels, but about individuals expressing themselves and their individuality in their life and work. The individuals on the list prove that along with doing fascinating research, scientists are fascinating people, from athletes and techies to chefs and yes…even fashionistas”, said Future-ish.
