A young scientist in Bulgaria with lots of prestigious awards for best scientific excellence practices I put my all energy in revealing the secrets of the way our DNA functions.

The way we live, the way we talk, the way we breathe and the environment is what shapes our destinies and is controlling our genomes.....and as I breathe in and out with science, it might be interesting to follow my endeavours on the battlefield of Molecular Biology.

I have graduated from the University of Sofia, Faculty of Biology in 2001 and since then have been working at the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics, Institute of Molecular Biology, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, where I obtained my PhD in Molecular Biology.

Luckily I became part of a very enthusiastic and proactive team of young scientists. There I have been trained in surviving as a young scientist in Bulgaria...Difficult task regarding all the problems of Bulgaria has been faced during the first years of its democracy, but that task has been fulfilled successfully.
As a young scientist I have been granted with lots of opportunities to travel abroad and to gather experience. The healthy scientific environment in the laboratory helped me to span my ideas freely and allowed me to develop a strong scientific background.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
