Maria Kuman is author of 30 books. She has her own self-publishing company – Health and Happiness Books. She has also published more than 100 articles in different journals. She was born in the country of Bulgaria, but is of Celtic descent. The city she was born in, Burgas, has a Celtic name, which in Gallic means ‘fortress’. Since the Celts are minority in Bulgaria, afraid of loosing their identity, they kept the Celtic traditions more than the Celts on the British Isles, where they were majority. If you want to know more about ancient Celtic traditions, you should ask the Bulgarian Celts. Kuman is her maiden family name – it is the name of her father’s father – and it means ‘Spiritual Man’ in Gallic. She is a graduate of physics and mathematics from the University of Sofia, Bulgaria, and has PhD degrees of physics and mathematics from the University of Saint Peterburg, Russia, where Head of Department of Theoretical Physics was the famous Acad. Fock world-known with the so-called Hartree-Fock method. She created her own Holistic Research Institute and actively works at the frontier of science.

He is a faculty member of ATSU School of Osteopathic Medicine as a Professor of Pediatrics, Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine and Integrative Medicine, Contributor for Pediatrics years 3-4, instructor for Nutrition in Medicine. He is double boarded in Pediatrics and he finished Dr. Andrew Weil’s two year Program in Integrative Medicine under the Department of Family Practice at the University of Arizona Tucson- Class 2006, Board certified in Integrative Medicine. He is a member of COMSEP (Council on Medical Student Education-Pediatrics), AHMA (American Holistic Medical Association), ASCH (the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis), and ABC (America Botanical Council). He has special interests in Botanical Medicine, Environmental Medicine and Mind-Body interactions.

He acquired intense molecular/cell biology knowledge and techniques in Dr Louis Pelus’s lab. Most recently, he opted to direct his studies to the pancreatic islet β cell, a cell known to be susceptible to apoptosis, and joined the lab of Dr. Debbie Thurmond, renowned for expertise with islet and skeletal muscle vesicle trafficking mechanisms as they pertain to diabetes. In addition, this training experience further enhanced my research development by acquiring skills in interrogating the cell-specific molecular mechanisms underlying the whole-body physiology of diabetes. 2011 he was awarded a CTSI KL2 Translational Research award and have just submitted his third independent paper as corresponding author. Over the past 10 years his research revealed Pak1 to be a positive effector of pancreatic β-cell function, operating in a novel signaling cascade that is crucial to maintaining whole-body glucose metabolism. Most importantly, data he have generated during the course of my CTSI KL2 independent career award indicates that Pak1 serves as a critical signal-hub for pancreatic β cell survival and replication.
