Dr Spaska Angelova Stanilova started her career in Medical Biology and received her PhD in Immunology at Higher Medical Institute in 1991. She is currently a full professor of Molecular Biology and Dcs in Immunology, and Head of Department of Molecular Biology, Immunology and Medical Genetics at the Faculty of Medicine, Trakia University. At the department, she leads the Molecular Immunology research unit at the crossroad of genetics and immune regulation. Their main research goals are to gain an insight into the molecular mechanisms of gene expression with an emphasis on implication of cytokine gene polymorphisms and intracellular signaling in immune mediated and cancer diseases. Dr Stanilova is a member of the European Federation of Immunological Society and has reviewed for several scientific journals.
