Biography

Kostas moved to the UK in 1998 to study for a BSc in Genetics at the University of Leicester, having completed his high school education in his native Greece.  After graduation he went on to the University of York to undertake a Masters in Bioinformatics, which included a three-month industrial placement writing software to process mass spectrometric data.  Having gained an interest in mass spectrometry, Kostas then went to the University of Warwick in order to pursue a PhD that combined experimental and computational studies in mass spectrometry-based proteomics. After being awarded his PhD in 2006, Kostas was the successful recipient of a one year Wellcome Trust Value in People Fellowship. Post doctoral training followed and two years later he was awarded a Science City fellowship jointly hosted by the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham. In 2010 Kostas moved to the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology at University College London / Birkbeck to take up a lectureship in biophysical mass spectrometry. His research interests are in using ion mobility coupled to mass spectrometry to study protein complexes of type IV secretion systems, protein misfolding diseases such as alpha-1 antitrypsin and DNA-binding proteins involved in DNA packaging. 

Research Themes
Research Summary
The Thalassinos lab is interested in studying the structure of proteins and protein complexes using a combination of mass spectrometry, ion mobility mass spectrometry and proteomics approaches. It also develops computational tools, when necessary, to process the data obtained. Current research projects involve the study of protein complexes of type IV secretion systems, protein misfolding diseases such as alpha-1 antitrypsin and age related neurodegeneration in Drosophila melanogaster.
