was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria. I came to Vienna in 1999 to
study medicine, and in 2006, I graduated from the Medical University of
Vienna. The topic of my thesis, done in Prof. Ferenci’s group,
was the genetics of Wilson’s Disease in Bulgaria. A few months
later I started my PhD in Prof. Gasche´s lab.
current project is on the influence of iron deficiency on
megakaryopoiesis. I am actively involved in cellular and molecular
biology work, animal experiments and clinical trials.
