Yesterday, the 31st October, the official conference hall of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences hosted the annual solemn meeting of the Union of Scientists in Bulgaria dedicated to the National Day of the Enlighteners. Many officials, members of the union and academia attended the ceremony where the annual scientific awards of the Union were announced. We are extremely proud to report that this year’s award for High Scientific Achievements goes to assoc. professor Andrey Tchorbanov. The prize was personally awarded by the president of the Union akad. D.Damyanov.

Later in his personal Facebook profile prof.Tchorbanov shared a photo of him holding the official award diploma in the company of most of the lab members and stated: “Even if the price is personalized to me it is the result of the combined efforts of whole my team. I address special thanks to all the colleagues that made this award possible”.

This is the second prize our lab gets this year after Vera was awarded the Prize of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences “akad. Ivan Evstratiev Geshov” for youngest researchers earlier this year. This is a great achievement for the whole lab and a strong sign of recognition for the significance of our scientific work. So we are happy to share the news and would like to also thank to all our partners and all the people that backed us up through all those years. We also would like to use the positive energy and to wish good luck and even greater achievements to all the lab members.
