    Collapse overview
    Physicist graduated from the prestigious National University of Engineering in Lima, Peru, Dr Zimic is also a biostatistician and a PhD in International Health from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He also has a Masters of Genetics from the JHSPH and a Masters in Biochemistry from the UPCH. He trained at the UNI in theoretical physics. Mirko Zimic is a tenured Principal Professor of Biochemistry and Bioinformatics at the UPCH. Dr Zimic's innovative capacities have already produced an automated system for tuberculosis culture video surveillance and interpretation, which is now being adopted by the Peruvian Ministry of Health, and is also developing a series of initiatives in telemedicine and telediagnostics.  Dr. Zimic heads the Bioinformatics laboratory at UPCH.  His research besides the imaging algorithms is also very much involved the genetics of T. solium and using it to develop diagnostics especially for single cyst neurocysticercosis. His group studies the mechanism of action and resistance to pyrazinamide in Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and recently is starting to apply immunoinformatics techniques to analyze whole pathogen genomes in order to rationally develop novel immunodiagnostics antigens and potential vaccines. 
    Dr. Zimic leads the Bioinformatics and Molecular Biology laboratory at UPCH.  His research besides the imaging algorithms is also very much involved in development of alternate and cost-effective hardware for diagnostics. His group developed an under $500 inverted microscope and an automatic MODS plate reader for automation of TB diagnostics. Most recently, Zimic´s group has proven the utility of lens-free microscopy for TB diagnostics, developing an affordable system to be used in developing countries.
