Angelos came to the UK to undertake his graduate studies after completing his undergraduate degree in Biology at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Funded by an MRC fees only award and a CRUK/MRC Oxford Institute for Radiation Oncology studentship, he started his DPhil with Associate Professor Eric O’Neil in 2010 on tumour suppressor signalling, the tumour microenvironment, and stem cell fate determination.
His work has been published in Cancer Research and Clinical Cancer Research amongst other journals. His achievements during his DPhil were recognised by a number of talk and poster prizes and more recently by an MRC Doctoral Training Partnership Award 2014/2015 with a Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Angelos is currently a postdoctoral researcher in Eric O’Neill’s group and is applying for prestigious international fellowships for his next position.
