Predrag Slijepcevic

Senior Lecturer in Biology, Brunel University London

I am a bio-scientist interested in the philosophy of biology. In particular, I investigate how biological systems, from bacteria to animals and beyond, perceive and process environmental stimuli (biological information) and how this processing, which is a form of natural learning, affects the organism-environment interactions. I aim to identify those elements in the organization of biological systems that lead to forms of natural epistemology, or biological intelligence, that may qualify them as cognitive agents.

In particular, I specialise in analysis of chromosomes and study of structures at chromosome ends called telomeres. My other interest is animal behavior developed while studying veterinary medicine. I have lately developed interest in insects and their propensity to develop technologies.
