Patsalos is a postdoctoral fellow in the Nagy Lab at the Institute for Fundamental Biomedical Research (Johns Hopkins University, Departments of Medicine and Biological Chemistry). He obtained his bachelor’s degree in biology, and his master’s degree in the molecular basis of human disease from the University of Crete, Greece. During his Ph.D. at the University of Debrecen, Hungary, he investigated the role and contribution of myeloid cells to skeletal muscle injury and regeneration, and revealed novel pathways involved in tissue repair. He now seeks to investigate whether any of these pathways could be manipulated in vivo to restore proper muscle regeneration and repair in disease states (i.e. Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy), using genome-wide analyses, and disease relevant pre-clinical experimental model systems.
