Kaloyan Takov received his BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences (Pharmacology) from The University of Edinburgh in 2015. He then pursued his PhD as part of the British Heart Foundation four-year PhD programme at University College London where he worked on the cardioprotective roles of stem cell-derived extracellular vesicles (exosomes). Kaloyan joined Prof Mayr's laboratory in late 2019 and had a leading role in the COVID-19 research output of the group. His current research is focused on lipoprotein and extracellular vesicle biology employing cell-based and circulating biomarker studies as well as chromatographic and mass spectrometry approaches.
