About me

  • Adamantia Fragkopoulou is a Neuroscientist with focus on Brain Injury,
    Radiation Biology, and Behaviour. During her PhD, she studied the effects of
    non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation on the mouse brain and behavior. In
    2015, she moved to the Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet,
    where she performed postdoctoral studies on perinatal brain injury and
    neurodevelopmental disorders. In 2019, she became an Assistant Professor at
    the Department of Women's and Children's Health at KI, and her current
    research addresses how ionizing radiation (radiotherapy, RT) affects the
    young brain. She is using novel technologies, including antisense
    oligonucleotides, to ameliorate the so-called late complications of RT, such
    as cognitive decline, in childhood cancer survivors. She is also a manager
    of the X-ray core facility at KI.
