Interdisciplinary biotechnical researcher Dunja’s work has greatly influenced the advancement of our knowledge of the secondary metabolic process called metabolomics. Metabolomics is the scientific study of chemical processes
involving metabolites. Specifically, metabolomics is the systematic study of the unique chemical fingerprints that specific cellular processes leave behind, the study of their small-molecule metabolite profiles. This work has wide-ranging impact for both the food and pharmaceutical industries.
