Damjan Krstajić is founder and Director of the Centre. After graduating Mathematics (Probability and Statistics) at the University of Belgrade, moved to England and worked in Cyprotex as a Principal Scientist/Software Engineer. Moved back to Serbia and founded the Centre in 2005.
Damjan Krstajić worked as a bioinformatician/statistician at the Institute of Molecular Genetics and Genetical Engineering from December 2013 till December 2014 when he resigned, due to misuse of his internal reports. His findings and results for statistical models related to medical research were altered in order to get papers published. Stankovic et al  and Milosevic et al  are two examples where his statistical work was knowingly misused, and where models with random predictions are presented as a reasonable scientific certainty.
Damjan Krstajić has been a member of the Clinical Persona team since its inception in 2013.
