Dr. Atanas G. Atanasov´s research focuses on molecular mechanisms of pharmacological action in the context of inflammation and cardiometabolic disease, and natural product-based drug discovery. Since 2008, Dr. Atanasov is a senior researcher at Department of Pharmacognosy, University of Vienna, where he was actively involved in the execution of the Austrian national network “Drugs From Nature Targeting Inflammation” (DNTI), a collaborative research project which has been financed with >3 000 000 Euro from the Austrian Science Fund. In recognition of his overall achievements, Dr. Atanasov has been awarded in 2012 with “Focus of Excellence” fellowship by the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Vienna. In addition to traditional ways for scientific dissemination (peer reviewed research publications, conference contributions etc.), Dr. Atanasov has been very successful in respect of direct science communication in the Social Media (Klout Score = 78).
