Dr. Vlasiou has a PhD in the field of Medicinal Inorganic Chemistry. His thesis was incorporated the
synthesis and characterisation of metal-based drugs that causing apoptosis in cancer cells. He is a
member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and a certified chemist. In addition, he is a reviewer for a
number of scientific journals and author of several scientific articles. He is currently teaching physical
chemistry and physical pharmacy in the department of Life and Health Sciences at the University of
Nicosia (Pharmacy program). His research interests lie both on synthesis of anticancer and antimicrobial
metal-based drugs and in spectroscopic evaluation of drug interactions. The last years he likes to
evaluate his molecules with computational chemistry and docking studies as well.
