Apostolos is an Assistant Professor of Cancer Genetics in the Department of Life Sciences at the European University Cyprus. He received his BSc in Biology from the Department of Biology at the University of Crete in 2004. He earned his Ph.D. in the field of Cancer Genetics and Viral Oncology, at the Department of Clinical Virology of the Medical School of the University of Crete in 2008. He worked as Research Scientist at the Harris Birthright Research Center for Fetal Medicine at King’s College Hospital (2009-2010) and performed postdoctoral research in Cancer Genetics at the Molecular Medicine Research Center of the University of Cyprus (2011-2013). He completed his postdoctoral training in Immunogenetics and Cancer Genetics at the Department of Laboratory Medicine of the Karolinska Institutet (2013-2015). He also holds a Specialization in Systems Biology from the Systems Biology Center of the Icahn School of Medicine in Mount Sinai (2015). Apostolos’ research focuses on the advance understanding of carcinogenesis through the investigation of interactions between genes and the analysis of Big Data in Genomics. His major interests include the discovery of therapeutic targets in cancer using next-generation sequencing (NGS) approaches. At present, his research focuses on the examination of the immune landscape of colorectal cancer and the understanding of how this relates to different aspects of the tumor’s biology, hoping to produce new knowledge that will be used to provide a better therapeutic guidance to patients suffering from the disease. Apostolos has been Guest Editor for several Special Issues and an Associate Faculty Member of the F1000Prime. He is the recipient of the Science Award (2017) from the Youth Board of Cyprus, and the first Young Investigator Award from the Bank Of Cyprus Oncology Centre (2017).
