Dr. Vassilakos has obtained a BSc in Marine Biology and Zoology (Bangor, UK), an MSc in Molecular Genetics (Leicester, UK), a PhD in immunogenetics (Durham, UK) and a PGCert in Clinical Immunology, (Manchester, UK). He was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship by the Medical Research Council (UK) in order to study oncogenes expression using transgenic technologies. He has held various research positions in molecular biology and immunology and he has taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses in molecular biology, molecular immunology, molecular genetics and evolution. At the present, Dr Vassilakos’ research focuses on the development of monoclonal antibodies for the early detection of ovarian cancer (funded by Stavros Niarchos Foundation) and for the detection of subclinical mastitis (funded by ESPA 2014-2020), on endometrial stem cells applications in regenerative medicine (Athens Medical School) and on novel molecular technologies for the diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases (University of Thessaly).
