In my research laboratory currently located at the University of Patras Medical School, we have been performing research in lipidology for over 20 years. Using unique animal models and advanced molecular approaches we explore the exciting world of lipoproteins for better health.
 
Our preclinical studies aim at unraveling molecular links between the lipoprotein transport system and diseases such as dyslipidemia, morbid obesity and diabetes. Ultimate goal of our studies is the identification of novel pharmacological targets and the creation of individualized therapies.
 
Our clinical studies focus on the better understanding of pharmacotherapy and the potential synergism between therapies for increased therapeutic efficacy. Along these lines, we provide consulting services to the Pharmaceutical industry, for post-marketing evaluation and product safety assessment. To increase the impact of our work, the scientists of my team come from different disciplines of biomedical research, contributing to an interdisciplinary approach to all projects.
 
In this website you will be introduced to the members of the lab, our representative publications in international peer-reviewed journals, the research services we provide and the most notable news from our lab and around the world. Please take the time and watch our educational videos in the e-Learning section of our site.

I would like to thank you for taking this virtual tour in my lab. Enjoy surfing our website!

BBA Molecular Basis of Disease, accepted for publication our paper entitled “Site-specific effects of apolipoprotein E expression on diet-induced obesity and white adipose tissue metabolic activation”

14 November 2017

BBA Molecular Basis of Disease (BBA Dis), just accepted for publication our paper entitled “Site-specific effects of apolipoprotein E expression on diet-induced obesity and white adipose tissue metabolic activation”. The paper shows that brain APOE exerts a dominant inhibitory effect on white adipose tissue (WAT) mitochondrial metabolic activation that is independent of its ability to promote postprandial lipid deposition to tissues, including liver and WAT. There is a wide perception among broader scientific community that Apoe promotes obesity via direct lipid delivery to adipose tissue in the periphery [1]. This is based on the knowledge that lipoprotein-bound Apoe is a...

Our manuscript entitled ‘High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism and bone mass’ is now featured in the Journal of Endocrinology educational resources - JBL (Journal Based Learning)

03 August 2017

Our manuscript ‘High-Density Lipoprotein (HDL) metabolism and bone mass’ recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Endocrinology (IF=4.71, Official Journal of the Society for Endocrinology) has been selected to be featured in the journal’s educational resource – Journal Based Learning (JBL). JBL is being introduced to help educate clinicians-in-training and junior researchers. It is based upon leading articles published in the Journal of Endocrinology that form the evidence for continuing professional development programmes. Congratulations to all contributors for their good work!
