About the Serial Editors

Rossen Donev Serial Editor

Rossen Donev received his PhD degree in 1999 from the Institute of Molecular Biology, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. He did postdoctoral training at Imperial Cancer Research Fund, UK (renamed after the merger with Cancer Research Campaign to Cancer Research UK, London Research Institute) and Cardiff University. In 2010 Dr. Donev was appointed Lecturer in Swansea University. Currently he is Director of Biomed Consult Ltd, UK. His major research interests include signalling pathways involved in neuropsychiatric disorders and tumour escape from the immune system, and development of therapeutic strategies for treatment. He has published more than 50 research papers, has chaired scientific meetings in Molecular Medicine and given plenary talks at Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder meetings. Rossen Donev has consulted on projects related to development of treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders and cancer therapies. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Advances in Protein Chemistry and Structural Biology and on editorial board of several other journals.
