Sofia Grammenoudi received her Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from UMIST, Manchester and her Master's degree from the University of Manchester. She then pursued her studies at B.S.R.C. “Al. Fleming”, where under the supervision of Dr. E.M.C. Skoulakis, she received her Ph. D. degree in Neurobiology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2006. During her Ph. D. studies she worked on the role of 14-3-3ζ in the function and pathology of the nervous system using Drosophila melanogaster neurodegerative disease models.
In 2007, she joined the B.S.R.C. “Al Fleming” Flow Cytometry Unit as an Operational Manager. From 2013 to 2017 she also served as a Confocal Microscopy and Micro-CT Infrafrontier supervisor and trainer. In January 2016 she was appointed as Staff Scientist grade C’ and in 2019 elected at grade B’. Her research interest aims on the development of infrastructures that provide integrated, standardized assays and services in biomedical research with focus in the inflammatory phenotype monitoring of mouse disease models. She participates in the National Research Infrastructures InfrafrontierGR/Phenotypos, pMedGR and Bioimaging-GR. She has published 16 articles in peer-reviewed international journals (>550 citations, h-index: 12, Source: https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=14060286700 )
Currently, Sofia Grammenoudi is the Scientific and Operational Manager of the Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Facility. She is responsible for the maintenance, quality control and operation of infrastructure and the supervising and training of staff and internal users. Also, she is involved in experimental assay design and optimization, analysis and interpretation of results.
