Biography

I joined the UCL School of Pharmacy in 2013 as an Excellence Fellow to pursue independent research in biomedical nanotechnologies. Prior to my appointment, I was a Research Associate in IESL-FORTH (Heraklion, Greece) where I conducted research in laser phototherapies utilizing multifunctional responsive nanoparticles. In 2009, I was awarded with a PhD from the School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham, UK. My research project aimed at the construction of cell copycats based on "smart" glycopolymers that mediate specific cell-polymer interactions. I also hold a Ptychion in Materials Science from the University of Patras, Greece (2005). Currently, my research interests include nanomedicinal formulations for cancer therapy, drug delivery systems, design of "smart" materials for biomedical applications, biophotonics, polymer chemistry, and pharmaceutical technologies.

Research Summary

My laboratory is currently funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Leverhulme Trust by Early Career Fellowship programs. Key research foci include:

- Gold nanoparticles for cancer therapy and diagnosis

- "Smart" polymers for targeted drug delivery

- Biomaterials for cardiac tissue regeneration

- Micro- and nano- formulations for the controlled delivery of multiple drug molecules and biologics.

Teaching Summary

 I am a course leader of the "Nanomedicine and Targeted Delivery" module and guest lecturer at the module "Overcoming Biological Barriers".
