Ms. Angeliki Karakasidi, Research Assistant

Angeliki obtained her 4-year Bachelor degree in Material Science at University of Patras, Greece in 2017, with the highest grade point average of her class. For final year dissertation she conducted research on graphene organic derivatives as drug delivery systems of pharmaceutical compounds. In 2019, she completed her Master of Science in Chemistry and Technology of Materials at University of Ioannina, Greece, and her research project focused on chemical functionalization of graphene and the effect on electrical and magnetic properties. She joined Nanomedicine Lab at University of Manchester as a Visiting Researcher in May 2019 to gain valuable laboratory experience by involving in the surface functionalization of graphene and graphene oxide for radiolabeling/imaging purposes in order to determine their pharmacokinetic profile.
