Andreani Odysseos, MD/PhD (female) founder and leader of the Translational Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology Team at the University of Cyprus,  combines translational clinical research, academic and entrepreneurial expertise, greatly sought for an undertaking such as the IPMT CoE Teaming project.  Her main research interests include molecular imaging and nanomedicine –based drug delivery systems in  multifactorial, kinase-mediated malignancies, epitomised by malignant gliomas, drug resistance and the role of biological and mechanical barriers in tumor management. She is also involved in projects with emerging concepts  and technologies such as Molecular Communications and Nanonetworks and their applicability in the management of highly complex malignancies, highly relevant to IPMT CoE. She is the author of 28 papers (6 under publication), 2 chapters, one monograph, 1 editorial, 50 conference proceedings, essentially cited with an H-index 26. She has been awarded with 3 EPO and US patents, 1 WIPO, two of which on nanomedicine. Over the past 10 years Dr Odysseos has attracted national and EC funding, 9 as coordinator, amassing €2,033,496 as coordinator and 7 as participant, amassing € 3.418.582, including a prestigious FETOpen and 2 MSCA (NANORESISTANCE-FP7-IAPP and PATHCHOOSER-FP7-ITN) through which she has trained and supervised 3PhD students and 9 PostDocs.
