In his spare time, George likes staying at home and watching movies and series. As well, he has a passion for cooking and loves tasting different types of beers. Once in a while, George can be seen enjoying a bicycle ride around the city. 

Research Focus:

George’s project focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate atherosclerosis development. Specifically, his research focuses on the role of the adapter protein PDZK1, which binds to the C-terminal of the scavenger receptor class B type 1 (SR-B1), the main receptor for high-density lipoproteins (HDL).
