Recently, the lab is developing three novel projects, entitled:
1. Chromatin structure and dynamics during the lifespan of living organisms – elucidating the most intricate mechanisms that govern cellular fate

2. Genetic and epigenetic based research of ageing and age-associated human diseases

3. Advancement and application of modern methods for bio-monitoring of the environment


Work is in progress and graduate students, MSc, PhD students, and post-docs with interests in the expanding field of Epigenetics and its multivariate applications in human life and health could contact Assoc. prof. Miloshev via email:
