Dr Periklis (Laki) Pantazis is a Reader in Advanced Optical Precision Imaging (equiv. Associate Professor) at the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London.
He studied Biochemistry at the Leibniz University of Hannover, Hannover/Germany followed by a PhD in Biology and Bioengineering at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden./Germany.
He pursued then postdoctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology/Pasadena/CA/USA before joining as an Assistant Professor the ETH Zurich Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering in Basel/Switzerland.
In 2018/2019, he established his Laboratory of Advanced Optical Precision Imaging at Imperial College London that conceives and applies cutting-edge imaging technologies, assays and reagents for the mechanistic dissecting of development, disease progression and tissue regeneration. His team fosters interdisciplinary projects in the fields of Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, Engineering, Chemistry and Optics.
