Prof Mihalis Panagiotidis

Professor

Department: Applied Sciences

Mihalis is leading a research group which conducts research on the molecular mechanisms underlying disease pathology and the role of nutrition in disease prevention. More specifically, his group is investigating into the role of deregulated apoptosis and epigenetic pathways as key molecular targets underlining the pathological basis of human disease including cancer.

In addition, his group utilizes genomic approaches in an attempt to identify critical genes that act as potential biomarkers of therapeutic outcome. Finally, his group investigates how natural products exert a wide range of biological and pharmacological activities and thus are considered to be of great benefit in maintaining health and preventing disease development.

Mihalis is interested in linking the gap between industry and academia around the areas of bio-economy and industrial biotechnology. For this reason, he is leading research efforts in the multidisciplinary research theme of “Bio-economy” with emphasis on human health. To these ends, he is seeking industrial and academic collaborations for major and substantial funding opportunities.
