George Flamourakis


George did his Ph.D. thesis in our group.  George is a post-doctoral researcher at Angelo Accardo’s research group at the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime, and Materials Engineering (3mE) at the Delft University of Technology. He is currently investigating the effect of effective shear modulus on the propagation of the growth cone of neurons. More precisely, various height nanopillars of sub-micrometric scale are fabricated through 2 photon polymerization and are later used as 2.5D scaffolds for the culture of Neuronal Progenitor Cells. The study is focused on the growth cone of those cells through imaging via super high-resolution microscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy. This project is funded by NWO-XS and 3mE Cohesion grants.
