About/Biography
Dr. Marios Krokidis obtained his PhD in Biochemistry from the Medical School of Patras University, Greece, unravelling the role of the ribosomal exit tunnel as a significant factor of protein biosynthesis regulation and drug targeting. He received his Diploma in Chemistry and his MSc in Medicinal Chemistry from Departments of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Patras University. During his doctoral studies, he visited as an IKYDA Research Fellow the Gene Center (Genzentrum München, LMU, Germany) and the Department of Biochemistry of Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, dissecting the mechanism of action of novel ribosome-targeting antibiotics against multidrug-resistant bacteria. Subsequently, he pursued postdoctoral studies at the Medical School of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Pharmacology and Pharmacogenomics Laboratory), investigating the molecular pathways of reactive oxygen species (ROS) production by NADPH oxidases and their role as key regulators of inflammation. Currently, his research interests as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are centered on innovative nanostructures development for nano- and biomimetic models, novel radical stress biomarkers discovery as well as significantly biomolecules’ modified profile characterization caused by free-radical implementation.
During his postgraduate studies he was granted with the ‘’Constantin Carathéodory” fellowship from the University of Patras Research Committee along with the IKYDA Program (Bilateral Cooperation Greece-Germany) from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation and the German Academic Exchange Service, while during his postdoctoral studies he has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Program, participating as a research fellow in the FP7-HEALTH NEURINOX project. He is a member of scientific societies among them the Hellenic Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the European Federation for Medicinal Chemistry and the European Peptide Society.
