AspireMED Students

My name is Marina Kontou and I am a second-year medical student at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Thessaly in Greece.

 

I am highly aspired to engage myself in scientific research and collaborate with other scientists who aim to promote medical research and development. Personally, I have always been fascinated by the way the human brain works and how despite its materialistic nature, it gives identity and perception to a human being. Therefore, my main interests focus on the neuroscience field, with emphasis on neurodegenerative diseases and genetics.

During the training in AspireMED, I have obtained fundamental knowledge about research methodology, and I had the chance to gather hands-on experience on literature-based research projects. As a member of the AspireMED group, I anticipate working on various research projects, expanding my knowledge on the medical field, and advancing my research skills.

Konstantinos Koumarelas

My name is Konstantinos Eleftherios Koumarelas and I am a 4th-year student at Medical School of Larissa, University of Thessaly, Greece.

 

The variety of subjects and seminars I attended throughout my studies have helped me cultivate my interest in molecular biology and autoimmune diseases. The way some malfunctions, translocations, or even epigenetic modifications affect gene expression of immune cells and trigger autoimmune diseases has always fascinated me. In order to delve deeper into these fields, I observed experiments in the Molecular Biology research lab of our Department.

Joining the training program of AspireMED helped me acquire basic research methodology knowledge and academic writing. As a member of the AspireMED research group my aim is to sharpen my skills and fulfill my goals.
