BSc, MSc, PhD, National University of Ireland Galway
Dimitrios Zeugolis completed his PhD at the University of Northampton in UK in 2005. Following that, Dimitrios spent 2.5 years at the National University of Singapore, as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow. In 2007, Dimitrios joined NUI Galway as a Government of Ireland Research Fellow. Since 2008, Dimitrios is a lecturer in Biomedical Engineering (Biomaterials) and Principal Investigator at the Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials (NFB) at NUI Galway. His research group (a) uses bottom up approaches to build nano-textured constructs that closely imitate the properties of native extracellular matrix assemblies; (b) utilises recent advancements in scaffold functionalisation, through incorporation of biophysical cues and biochemical signals, to provide therapeutic interventions for the treatment of soft tissue injuries; and (c) investigates how modulation of the in vitro microenvironment could facilitate cell phenotype and functionality preservation and enable wide acceptance and clinical translation of cell-based therapies.
