  • Doctor of Science, Combined treatment of murine experimental tumors SA-1 and LPB by IL-12 gene electrotransfer and ionizing radiation, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, April 2009
  • Bachelor of Science, Microbiology, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, 2004


After receiving a Bachelor of Science of Microbiology from the University of Ljubljana, Dr Tevz took up a position as a research assistant at the National Institute of Chemistry Slovenia.

In 2005, Dr Tevz began his PhD, in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Ljubljana and Institute of Oncology Ljubljana.

After being awarded his PhD, Dr Tevz joined European Initial Training Network Consortium for Prostate Cancer Research as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Philips Research in Netherlands.

He then travelled to Australia to join the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre-Queensland where his main research focus is progression of prostate cancer to castrate resistant disease and identification and development of new therapeutic targets.
