Christakis Constantinides, Ph.D

Christakis Constantinides completed his undergraduate studies at the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (Bachelors with First Class Honors in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 1992) and his graduate (CASP/USIA scholar) and postgraduate (Whitaker Foundation scholar) studies at the Johns Hopkins University Whiting School of Engineering (M.S.E, 1994) and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (Ph.D., 2000), in Biomedical Engineering. He held an appointment as a Visiting Research Fellow (Fogarty International Fellow) at the National Institutes of Health (2001–2003). He joined the faculty of Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Cyprus in September 2005. He has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Director of the ISO 9001 certified Laboratory of Physiology and Biomedical Imaging (LBI) ‘HIPPOCRATES’. He was trained at the EU Institutions (2013-2014) and was a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow in the Department of Cardiovascular Medicine at U. Oxford (2015-2017). His specific research interests focus on the study of cardiac mechanical function, computational and tissue structure modeling and characterization, and functional and cellular tracking methods using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The goal of his research efforts is the complete characterization of the electromechanical function of the heart in small animals, aiming to promote the understanding of mechanisms of human disease that is predominantly underlined by genetic causes. He has taught in the areas of mechatronics and automated systems, and physiology and biomedical imaging.

He has published over 100 papers in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences, 4 book chapters, and 4 books (including two edited books). He has been a member of the American Physiological Society (APS), the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the European Society of Molecular Imaging (ESMI), and serves as a reviewer for the journals of PLOS ONE, NMR in Biomedicine, Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance, the Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and the Journal of Applied Physiology. He serves as a reviewer for ISMRM, EMBS, IEEE-SBI, and EU’s TDP Cost-Action.
