Summary of Curriculum Vitae

The research team of Dr. Kypreos focuses on the pathological conditions associated with metabolic syndrome with particular emphasis on dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis, obesity and type II diabetes. Ultimate goal through comprehensive research approaches is the elucidation of the molecular aetiology of these diseases, the identification of novel pharmaceutical targets and the development of new pharmaceutical approaches for their treatment. Such novel approaches maycontribute to the personalization of medical treatment on the basis of the genetic profile of the patient.
 
The work of the team has received significant international recognition and appreciation in the field. The research activities of the team are financially sponsored by the European Research Council, and to a lesser extent by local funding agencies.  The group collaborates with a number of internationally recognized prestigious laboratories worldwide. Representative manuscripts of our work can be found in the Representative Publications page of our website: http://www.med.upatras.gr/kkypreos/index.htm.
