Assistant professor Danail Minchev works in the Medical biology department (Medical University of Plovdiv). He holds a Bachelor's degree in molecular biology and a Masters's degree in molecular biology and biotechnology.
His research interests include, but are not limited to the following areas: cell metabolism, repetitive DNA elements, and comparative transcription analysis, and he has also published his work in peer-reviewed journals with an impact factor.
Asst prof Minchev actively participates in a research team working on a project investigating the inflammation and mitochondrial function in children with autism spectrum disorder (financially assisted by the National Science Fund).
