Stavroula Ntoufa is a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Applied Biosciences (CERTH). After graduating as a molecular biologist-geneticist in 2006 from Democritus University of Thrace, she conducted her phd thesis supervised by Dr. Kostas Stamatopoulos, a leading expert in immunogenetics and lymphomas. She was familiarized with lymphoma biology and more specifically with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), while she also gained experience in a series of molecular biology techniques. During her thesis, she studied Repertoire and functionality of innate and adaptive immune receptors in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. Her training during her PhD thesis in the Division of Experimental Oncology and Department of Onco-Hematology, IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute and Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele, in Milan, Italy, and her postdoctoral research in the University of Uppsala from 2014-2016, supervised by Dr. Richard Rosenquist gave her the opportunity to interact with experts in the field of lymphomas and immune signaling and also apply a wide range of techniques including high throughput technologies and specifically NGS. During 2015-2016 she was a post-doctoral fellow of the State Scholarships Foundation, IKY-Greece, conducting her research at the Institute of Applied Biosciences (INAB-CERTH). Her current research interests focus on studying the role of microenvironmental interactions and immune signaling in human lymphomas, using high throughput technologies (RNA-seq, Ribo-seq).
