About me

  • I received my B.Sc. degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics from Dimokritus
    University of Thrace (Greece - 2005). I subsequently received a Ph.D. in
    Medical Sciences from B.S.R.C Alexander Fleming (Greece - 2009) with special
    focus on post-transcriptional modifications and their role in hematopoietic
    development and colon cancer. In 2010 I had 1 year interruption in research
    due to my compulsory military service where I specialized as Microbiologist
    Assistant in the microbiology laboratory of Military Hospital for Special
    Diseases (414
  • Athens, Greece). I then joined the group of Professor Eva
    Hellström-Lindberg and Professor Sten-Eirik Jacobsen at Karoliska Institute
    (Sweden – 2011) as post-doctorate researcher to focus my research on the
    hematopoietic and MDS (myelodysplastic syndromes) cancer stem cells. From
    October 2017, I am an Assistant Professor and research associate for
    Professor Eva Hellström-Lindberg at Center for Regenerative Medicine and
    Hematology (HERM), Department of Medicine Huddinge, Karolinska Institutet.
    Overall, I am specialized in molecular biology, RNA and
    post-transcriptional field, in HSC and leukemic/cancer stem cell biology,
    various molecular biology/genetics and sequencing platforms as well as
    multi-color flow cytometry sorting.
    2018, Research Grant awarded from Åke Olsson Foundation for Hematological
    Research (Sweden)
    2021, Research Grant awarded from Center of Innovative Medicine CIMED,
    Karolinska (Sweden)
    2005, B.Sc. in Molecular Biology and Genetics, Democritus University of
    Thrace, Alexandroupoli, Greece
    2009, Ph.D. in Medicine at University of Ioannina and Biomedical Sciences
    Research Center Alexander Fleming, Greece
    2011-2017, Postdoctoral researcher, HERM, Department of Medicine Huddinge,
    Karolinska Institutet, Sweden


  • My research focus is on malignant hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) functions and
    MDS stem cells. The overreaching aim is to characterize the cellular and
    molecular heterogeneity but also the RNA usage within MDS stem cells. The
    vision is to explore novel solutions and tools to treat the disease in its
    origin by understanding and manipulating the RNA dynamics of MDS stem cells.
