Alkystis Phinikaridou, PhD

Dr. Alkystis Phinikaridou is a Lecturer in the Biomedical Engineering Department at King’s College London. Dr. Phinikaridou received her PhD from Boston University in 2009. She joined the Biomedical Engineering Department at Kings College London in 2010 as Postdoctoral Research Associate and became Lecturer in Imaging Biology in 2016. Dr. Phinikaridou’s research focuses on Molecular Imaging of Cardiovascular Diseases including atherosclerosis, aortic aneurysms, thrombosis, and myocardial infarction using MRI and PET/MRI in preclinical animal models. Her main areas of research include endothelial dysfunction, extracellular matrix turnover, and thrombosis. She also works towards translating the findings from the preclinical studies into the clinical field and bridging the gap between basic research and clinical applications.
