Dr Alexia Eliades is an Assistant Senior Scientist in the R&D department of NIPD Genetics with a background in biochemistry, cancer and stem Cell biology and genetics.
She received her bachelor degree in Biology from the University of Athens (Athens, Greece) in 2005 and her PhD in Biochemistry from Boston University School of Medicine (Boston, MA, USA) in 2011. She subsequently worked as a postdoctoral scientist at the Stem Cell Haematopoiesis group at Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (University of Manchester, UK) between 2011 and 2016. During this period, she studied the underlying molecular mechanisms involved in haematopoietic development with the overall aim
of contributing to the development of in vitro protocols for the clinical use of haematopoietic stem cells in treating haematological malignancies. She has over 10 years of experience in cell biology,
biochemistry, cancer and stem cell biology, and genetics. She moved to her current position at NIPD Genetics in July 2016 to work on the development of next generation sequence-based assays for hereditary cancer predisposition, tumor molecular profiling and liquid biopsy.
