    Ilias obtained his B.Sc. from Biology Department and an MSc in Molecular Basis of Human Disease from the Medical School of the University of Crete. He acquired his PhD in Neuroscience from the Medical School of the University of Crete, where he studied the role of the neurosteroidal microneurotrophin BNN20 (a synthetic DHEA analogue) in different glial populations (oligodendrocytes, microglia, astrocytes) under demyelinating conditions using in vivo (LPC-induced demyelination model) and in vitro (oligodendrocyte and microglial primary cultures) approaches.
