About me

  • Stefania Koutsilieri is a Ph.D. student in the Laboratory of ‘Personalized
    Medicine and Drug Development’ in the Physiology and Pharmacology
    Department of Karolinska Institutet, under the supervision of Assoc. Prof.
    V.M.Lauschke. After graduating with honors from the Pharmacy School of the
    National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), she completed her
    Master’s degree in Pharmacology. Stefania has been awarded a Ph.D.
    scholarship from the Onassis Foundation to pursue research in the fields of
    Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics. Her research focuses on the profound
    characterisation of the signaling pathways activated upon the binding of
    medications on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in an effort to gain a
    better understanding of drug efficacy and side effects. The impact of
    interpatient variability is also investigated by employing 3D culture models
    of primary human tissues.
    Apart from the research projects in which she is involved, Stefania deeply
    believes that for Pharmacogenomics to be implemented in the clinic, it is of
    tremendous importance that regulatory aspects should be taken into
    consideration as carefully as research itself. To this end, Stefania focuses
    on the delineation of the similarities and most importantly, the
    discrepancies between the pharmacogenomic information that is documented in
    the drug labels approved by the two major regulatory bodies (FDA, EMA) and
    renowned research consortia, like the Clinical Pharmacogenetics
    Implementation Consortium.
