Short CV

I graduated from the Medical School of Athens in 2009 and afterwards did my specialisation in Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery in Germany. I got my certification as an orthopaedic and trauma surgeon in 2016 from the medical board of Sachsen, Germany.

Afterwards I have been enrolled in one of the European projects under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie scholarship with the European Sepsis Academy, called ESA-ITN. I moved to Athens Greece where as a young stage researcher I have been working under the supervision of professor Evangelos J. Giamarellos- Bourboulis. I have been studying the role of hydrogen sulphide in the pathogenesis of sepsis using a genetically modified animal model.
