Short CV

Kostas Marias holds a Principal Researcher position in the Institute of Computer Science (ICS-FORTH) since 2006, and since 2010 he is the Head of the Computational Biomedicine Laboratory at FORTH-ICS (http://www.ics.forth.gr/cbml/ ). During 2000-2002, he worked as a Researcher at the University of Oxford and from 2003-2006 as Associated Researcher at FORTH-ICS. He was the coordinator two EC projects on image-based cancer modelling (http://www.contracancrum.eu/ and http://www.tumor-project.eu/ ), while during 2010-2015 he actively participated in several other EC funded projects developing ICT technology focusing on medical image processing for personalized medicine. He coordinated the development of a wide range of image analysis and modelling tools designed for the clinical setting within the wider Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) EC initiative and has published more than 120 papers in international journals, books and conference proceedings focusing on medical image processing, analysis, image-based modelling and biomedical informatics.
