A Bit About Me

Andreas is now pursuing a doctoral degree in the Department of Biology at the University of Crete. He obtained a Bachelor's degree in Physics from the Department of Physics at the University of Crete and a Master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Western Macedonia. For his Master's thesis, he conducted research at Dr. Anthi Ranella's lab (Laboratory for Tissue Engineering—Regenerative Medicine and Immunoengineering) at IESL-FORTH, focusing on the effect of topography on the process of mesenchymal stem cell osteogenic differentiation. In 2023, he became a member of Dr. Maria Farsari's Nonlinear Lithography Research Group at IESL-FORTH. Currently, he is involved in the fabrication of 3D auxetic scaffolds at the microscale using nonlinear lithography. These scaffolds are intended for tissue engineering applications in the field of neuroregeneration
