Dr Plamena R. Angelova (Stroh) obtained her BSc in Molecular Biology and MSc in Biophysics and Radiobiology, both from Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, Bulgaria. She completed her PhD in Experimental Biophysics from Humboldt University Berlin in 2007, studying the oxidative modulation of potassium channels in the hippocampus. She continued to work on the role potassium currents in epilepsy in Uwe Heinemann’s Lab at Johannes-Mueller Institut für Physiologie, at Charité Berlin. Prior to joining IoN UCL, she completed a PostDoc at Technical University Munich (Klinikum Rechts-der-Isar, Neuro-Kopf-Zentrum, Experimental Neurosurgery group) working on in-vivo imaging of neurovascular coupling in spreading depression as a model of migraine, and she was as well involved in studies of neuroprotective treatment candidates for acute ischemic stroke.

She is currently Senior Research Fellow at Andrey Abramov’s Lab, where she studies the mechanisms underlying the neuronal loss in neurodegenerative diseases in terms of the function of misfolded proteins (alpha-synuclein and beta-amyloid), altered cellular signaling, mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative stress. As well, she is further interested in fundamental questions of neuroscience and bioenergetics, e.g. hypoxia sensing, ROS signalling, cancer pathogenesis and in unravelling the function of phylogenetically ancient molecule-inorganic polyphosphate.
