Short Bio:
George Spyrou received his B.Sc. on Physics from National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Afterwards he received Master of Sciences on Medical Physics from University of Patras, Greece where he completed also his Ph.D. on Medical Physics, working on algorithms and simulations applied on medical issues, especially on breast cancer imaging. Spyrou received also a Master of Sciences on Bioinformatics from the Department of Biology in the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.
Currently , he is working as a Senior Research Scientist in the Biomedical Informatics Unit of the Biomedical Research Foundation of the Academy of Athens (BRFAA) leading the Modeling and Computational Intelligence in Biomedical Informatics (MCIBI) Group.
Also, he has been assigned as the Head of the Department of Informatics and New Technologies in BRFAA. MCIBIG deals with projects in the field of Bioinformatics emphasizing in proteomics and genomics data analysis targeting to clinical bioinformatics and molecular diagnostics.Additionally, MCIBIG performs research in Medical Informatics especially in Computer aided diagnosis systems and Monte Carlo simulations for various medical imaging techniques.
The main aim of Spyrou is the application of his knowledge and skills in Physics, Mathematics and Informatics to medically and biologically relevant issues, mainly on the ‘mining’ of the information either in direct medical data (e.g., medical images) or in genomes and proteomes relevant to medical problems.
