Medical  & Academic Titles
1983 - Traditional research: “central dogma” of linear relationship & experimentation, one cause (gene / protein) one outcome (phenotype or disease) (reductionism).
2007 - 1980 Ptychion Iatrikis Medical School of Athens
2007 - 1988 PhD ( of J.W.Goethe-Universitaet Frankfurt aM

  Clinical cancer genome: Focus on understanding dynamics of heterogeneity, Impact of noncoding regulatory DNA on protein-coding genes, biocircuits and evolution in response to therapy by multiple serial spatiotemporal NGS-based sampling analysis including ctDNA. This patient-derived comprehensive cancer genome mutational and functional landscape is fundamental in the clinic. Linking this Comprehensove in time and space genome-scale personalized information with clinicopathologic and treatment data can provide unprecedented insights into transcriptome and genome-scaleand biocircits dysregulation  dynamics. These future developments pave a rational way for personalized therapies with next-generation transcripttional networks-based drugs.
