from Thessaloniki, Greece IMPRS fellow since October 2015 in Trompouki lab
Research interests During my bachelor studies I have always been interested in how signaling pathways can regulate cell fate and, ultimately, the whole organism’s cell composition and function. My PhD project evolves around the role of inflammatory signaling in hematopoiesis. We want to understand how inflammatory signals can be activated in the absence of infection and have an impact on the process of blood formation during embryonic and adult hematopoiesis. Understanding thoroughly the mechanisms that regulate hematopoiesis, will hopefully enable us to manipulate Hematopoietic Stem Cells and deal with severe blood disorders humanity is suffering from.
