Georgios obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Crete in Greece. He then followed two master programs in United Kingdom (University of Aberdeen) and France (Paris Descartes University) where he became more familiar with the field of biology and biophysics. He has obtained his PhD from the University of Grenoble Alpes/UGA in the laboratory of Isabelle Tardieux at the Institute for Advanced Biosciences (CNRS, INSERM, UGA) in Grenoble, where he gained knowledge and experience on interdisciplinary topics at the interface between cell biology, biophysics and parasitology.
“My interest is to understand the role of biophysical and topological properties of tissue microenvironments, such as stem cell niches, in modulating cell fate. Thus, the ability to precisely tune and control extracellular cell/organelle shape and geometry in 2D and 3D, is of critical importance. PRIMO has been incredibly useful in this regard!”
