Kalina Hristova Serves as Guest Editor of Special Issue of BBA Biomembranes
Professor Kalina Hristova served as one of the guest editors for a special issue of BBA – Biomembranes. This issue focuses on the research of scientists working in the area of interfacially active peptides and proteins.
Professor Hristova is internationally recognized for her pioneering studies of protein interactions in biological membranes. Her research is critical to the development of new treatments for cancer and growth disorders.
Additionally, the issue’s cover image is taken from a research paper co-authored by Dr. Martin Ulmschneider, Assistant Professor of Materials Science and Engineering.
