Hi, I'm Marios Stavrou and I studied IfLS PhD: Time Machines: Microfluidic investigation of epidermal growth factor receptor signal transduction mechanisms within Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Interdisciplinary research gives you the opportunity to use unconventional techniques to tackle unsolved scientific challenges.

I graduated with a BSc in Medical Genetics and an MSc in Molecular Pathology from the University of Leicester. With this experience, I’m motivated to understand the molecular mechanisms underpinning cell function and how this can lead to disease. My PhD project involves the use of high-speed microfluidics with multiplexed cytometric analysis to temporally resolve epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signal transduction, a process that can lead to cancer. This will be a great step forward for understanding the ligand-directed dimerization and activation of EGFR and therefore shed light on novel drug targets for the on-going war against cancer.
