Denitsa Lilova

I have always admired people and their exciting peculiarities. Working with people always triggered the best of me. Growing up in an academic family, I had to go to university and study. The only field which intrigued me the most was the science of life - Biology and above all the micro-universe: human body. Therefore I completed a Master degree in Cell biology.
