The First of Its Kind Workshop on Bioinformatics Entitled Introductory Computational Biology Course Was Held at MU – Varna

The first of its kind workshop on bioinformatics entitled Introductory Computational Biology Course was held at MU – Varna on 1-2 July 2021. The forum was held online with the support of TranStem project, and was organised by Dr. Manlio Vinciguerra, European Research Area (ERA) Chair in the field of Translational Stem Cell Biology at MU – Varna. Dr. Vinciguerra has invited prominent Italian lecturers who, within the two-day course, presented the core of the bioinformatic processing of genetic, protein and multi-OMICS data. See more here.

MU – Varna Organised the First in Bulgaria Scientific Symposium on ‘Epigenetics and Signalling in Stem Cells’

The first in Bulgaria scientific symposium on ‘Epigenetics and Signalling in Stem Cells’ was held on 16 and 17 April. This forum is the first international scientific event of the TranStem project, funded by the European Commission, under Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to unlock, promote and maintain research studies in the field of stem cells at the University and in the region to the highest world levels. The project will implement research developments focused on both fundamental research on stem cells and their clinical application for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The Research Institute of MU – Varna is in the process of establishing a research group of prominent scientists in the field of translational stem cell biology, headed by Dr. Manlio Vinciguerra, D.Sc.
