He is responsible for several clinical and translational research studies, as well as for the weekly thoracic molecular tumor board and subsequent treatment of patients with thoracic malignancies using novel compounds off-label or within expanded access programs. After studying medicine in the University of Athens, Greece, he completed his training in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Hematology, Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation, Medical Oncology, Genetic Counseling, and Palliative Care in the University Hospitals of Freiburg and Würzburg in Germany.

A major focus of his research lies in the systematic integration of clinical with genetic, pathologic, immunologic, and radiologic data to refine patient stratification, improve disease monitoring and identify novel therapeutic targets, which are subsequently translated into advanced preclinical models and investigator-initiated phase 2 clinical trials.
