Short Bio

Triantafyllos received a Diploma in Chemical Engineering from National Technical University of Athens, Greece (GPA: 9.34/10) in 2003. The same year he joined the Chemical Engineering graduate program at the University of Minnesota, USA to pursue his doctoral studies. He worked with Professor Victor Barocas on modeling the mechanical response of native and bioartificial tissues. During his doctoral studies, he was elected twice top doctoral student of the department. After the completion of his PhD., in May 2008, Triantafyllos worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Rakesh Jain's lab in the department of Radiation Oncology at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, USA. In Dr. Jain's lab he performed research in a mixture of experimental and computational problems for optimizing the delivery of nanomedicine to solid tumors. In September 2010, he joined the faculty of the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering department at the University of Cyprus.

Triantafyllos has co-authored over 60 publications published or accepted for publication in peer-review journals. His publication record includes four articles in Nature journals (Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Medicine, Nature Communications and Nature Reviews Clinical Oncology), six in PNAS, and two in Cancer Research. h-index:24, > 3000 hetero-citations.
