Panagiotis Daskalakis


Panagiotis Daskalakis is currently undertaking a Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Crete, with a primary objective to develop a cutting-edge In-situ hybrid 3D-4D printing system. This innovative system aims to produce functional and bioactive scaffolds using sustainable bio-derived polymers, with a specific focus on enhancing osteogenesis and neovascularization for bone tissue engineering applications.


Panagiotis earned his Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Crete, Technological University of Crete, and FORTH in 2022. His academic journey began with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the Hellenic Mediterranean University in 2020, where he showcased his engineering prowess by creating an Autonomous Intravenous Injection Mechanism for his thesis project.


During the 2019 Erasmus+ exchange program in BRNO, Czech Republic, Panagiotis specialized in aeronautics design and engineering, enriching his skill set in diverse engineering domains. With a solid foundation in mechanical engineering, he gained practical experience through a two-year tenure in the plastics industry as an Industrial Designer and Project Manager.


Currently affiliated with the Ultrafast Laser Micro & Nano Processing Laboratory of IESL, Panagiotis is actively involved in research focusing on ‘Scaffolding Techniques and Tissue Imaging.’ His ultimate goal is to cultivate expertise in tissue engineering by fostering interdisciplinary skills in engineering, biology, and materials science. Through these endeavors, Panagiotis aspires to contribute significantly to the advancement of innovative solutions in the field of regenerative medicine.
