Research activities

Our current research interests are focused towards two main directions:

1. The signaling pathways affecting the different types of cellular demise in synovial fibroblasts (SFs) and other mesenchymal cell types (such as Intestinal Fibroblasts), and their effect in the outcome of modeled diseases such as inflammatory polyarthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) by employing functional genetic approaches. 

2. The exploration of fibroblast diversity within the synovial membrane through lineage tracing approaches and molecular dissection of their profiles during development and in the course of joint diseases.


Current funding: Stavros Niarchos Foundation
