Blagoy Blagoev received MSc in Cellular and Developmental Biology from Sofia University, Bulgaria, in 1996. In 2003, he obtained PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from University of Southern Denmark (SDU), under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Matthias Mann. He became Associate Professor in 2007 and appointed full Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, SDU in 2014. In recognition of his contributions to quantitative proteomics and cellar signaling research, Blagoy Blagoev received several prestigious awards including Biotechnology Award for Young Researchers from the Danish Biotechnological Society, the Research Prize for Young Scientists from The Lundbeck Foundation and the Young Elite Researcher from the Danish Ministry of Science. Among others, Blagoy Blagoev is a member of the Danish Diabetes Academy, the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB), and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry UK. He has supervised and mentored more than 35 Master, PhD students and postdocs.
The interest of his research group is to explore the mechanisms of cell signaling that control the functions and fate of eukaryotic cells. Blagoev’s group combines mass spectrometry-based quantitative proteomics and molecular/cell biology for characterization of signaling networks, focusing on their regulation by post-translational modifications like phosphorylation and ubiquitination. Current projects include investigation of the dynamic orchestra of signaling events involved in human stem cell differentiation, as well as global comparative studies of healthy and disease states aiming to unveil aberrant signaling properties in diseases, which may serve as relevant targets for clinical intervention.
