  • During the last 25 years that I have been working in the Department of Pathology of the University of Athens, I have performed a large number of histological examinations and autopsies with personal responsibility. Especially, I perform a large number of autopsies of perinatal age and I do research of the perinatal mortality. I also perform a large number of forensic histopathological examinations.
  • In addition, I am concerned with Histopathology of the cardiovascular system. I study a large number of biopsies from the myocardium in transplanted or not patients and I am concerned with the research of myocardiomyopathy and arteriosclerosis.
