Post Doc

Dr Phanee Manganas is a post-doctoral researcher at IESL-FORTH. She received her BSc in Biology (Specialisation in Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology) and MSc in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine from the University of Crete. She then continued her studies at the University of Glasgow (UK), from where she obtained a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, while working on oxidative regulation mechanisms in the mitochondrial intermembrane space. Since joining the Biology/Biofabrication team of the Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano-Processing (ULMNP) group, she has been interested in interpreting the effect of 3D architecture on various cellular processes – including growth, survival, adhesion and differentiation – from a molecular and biochemical viewpoint, in order to understand the ways in which cells interact with the fabricated environment.
