Christakis Constantinides, Ph.D

Christakis Constantinides completed his undergraduate studies at the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (Bachelor with First Class Honors in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, 1992 (top 10%)) [short-listed on two consecutive years for the Cyprus-Cambridge U. scholarships – boards chaired by Former Attorney General Stella Soulioti] and his graduate (CASP/USIAD 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), respectively, in Biomedical Engineering (and the Department of Radiology). He held an appointment as a Visiting Research Fellow (Fogarty International scholar) at the National Institutes of Health (2001–2003). He joined the faculty of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Cyprus in September 2005 as an Assistant Professor and served as the Director of the ISO 9001 certified Laboratory of Physiology and Biomedical Imaging (LBI) “HIPPOCRATES.” He was trained at the EU Institutions (DG: Education [Erasmus Program: Performance Indicators], 2013–2014) and was a British Heart Foundation Fellow (Experimental Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Unit, Wellcome Trust of Human Genetics (WTHG), Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Oxford University, 2014), a Visiting Faculty at the European University School of Medicine (Spring 2015), and a Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellow in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine [WTHG, U. Oxford (2015–2017)]. The goal of his research efforts is the characterization of the cardiac function in animals and humans aiming to develop techniques to promote the understanding of the mechanisms of human disease. His specific research interests focus on the study of cardiac function, structural tissue modeling and characterization, multinuclear imaging, and functional and nano-based cellular tracking methods using MRI. He has taught in the areas of biomedical imaging, physiology, and mechatronics and automated systems. Since early 2019, he has been devoting most of his time to scientific editing [Cactus: Physical Sciences/Engineering, 2014, and Medicine, 2021, Enago (Medicine, 2020), Wordvice (Engineering and Medicine, 2023), and Edanz (Medicine, 2023)], and on Chi Biomedical Ltd. (Founder and Co-director since 2005).

He has published 90 papers in international peer-reviewed journals (average impact factor: 4.7) and conferences (total funding > 700k Euro), 1 editorial, 1 monograph (U. Oxford Biophysical Society), 4 book chapters, and 4 books (one as the sole author (>146 printed and e-copies sold internationally) and three as the editor (54 books sold and >25875 chapter downloads internationally). He has been a member of the American Physiological Society (APS), International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), European Society of Molecular Imaging (ESMI), American Heart Association, Institution of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), and the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE), and serves/has served as a reviewer for numerous journals including (among others) ACS-AMI (Impact Factor (IF): 10.4), the Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (IF: 7.25 – Gold Star Reviewer 2019), Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine (IF: 5.7), Scientific Reports (IF: 4.6), PLOS ONE (IF: 3.07), European Radiology (IF: 4.01), NMR in Biomedicine (IF: 4.04), Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (IF: 4.67), Journal of Magnetic Resonance (IF: 3.1), Journal of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (IF: 5.1), and the Journal of Applied Physiology (IF: 3.5). He serves/has served as an external grant reviewer for the Government of Canada, EU’s TDP Cost-Action grants, and as a reviewer for the ISMRM, EMBS, and IEEE-SBI conferences.
