Trompouki Lab

Group Leader Eirini Trompouki

Eirini Trompouki

Eirini studied Biology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Shen then performed her graduate studies in Biomedical Sciences Research Center “Al. Fleming” and the Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. In the lab of George Mosialos, Eirini studied the molecular underpinnings of NF-κB signaling and discovered new molecules that play fundamental roles in this pathway.

Later she did her postdoctoral studies in Leonard Zon’s lab at Boston Children’s Hospital. She studied how lineage-specific and signal-induced transcription factors synergize in hematopoietic differentiation and regeneration. This synergism fundamentally revealed how signal-induced transcription factors could exert tissue-specific functions.

In her own group Eirini focused on fundamental aspects of hematopoietic stem cell decisions from development to adulthood and disease. In 2019 she was awarded the Junior Faculty excellence award from the Zebrafish Disease Models Society. Eirini promotes diversity and inclusion and wants her lab members to be motivated and happy.
