Antonis has a BSc in Sports Science and an MSc in Molecular and Applied Physiology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. He went on to obtain a PhD diploma from the Institute of Sports Medicine Copenhagen (ISMC) with the title “Cell-matrix interactions in tendon constructs”. Antonis has worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Queen Mary University of London, investigating age-related tendinopathy, and at Umea University (Sweden), developing bioengineering models to demonstrate pathophysiological conditions.
Antonis works as a Research Associate in Musculoskeletal Bioengineering alongside Professor Mark Lewis.
As part of Professor Mark Lewis' research group, Antonis undertakes research to investigate tissue engineered skeletal muscle, focussing particularly on the mechanisms of skeletal muscle injury and regeneration.
