Prior to joining BU, Nevena led business development at a life sciences company which employs a proprietary antibody discovery platform to develop therapeutic candidates for cancer and autoimmune disorders. In that role, she also spearheaded alliance and program management that allowed the company to successfully implement significant growth opportunities and conduct a wide number of research programs.

Nevena holds a PhD in biochemistry and cell biology from Harvard University, where her research centered on gaining insight into different aspects of protein degradation by the ubiquitin-proteasome system. During her postdoctoral training at Harvard University, she contributed to elucidating the mechanism of action of pharmacological agents that presented novel approaches to treatment of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases and that were subsequently out-licensed. She also holds a BS in biology from Ramapo College of New Jersey.
