    Sofia Petsangouraki

    Sofia is a PhD candidate and she holds a master  in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine (University of Crete), and a B.Sc. in Biology from the University of Crete. Currently she aims to address  questions on myelin organization and function of cortical interneurons using the appropriate mouse models.

    Niki Ktena

    Niki obtained a B.Sc. in Biology and an M.Sc. in Neurosciences from the University of Crete, Greece. She joined the Karagogeos lab as a BSc student to study the role of a novel cytoskeletal molecule in interneurons. Following that, she started working in the field of oligodendrocyte autophagy as a member of the Savvaki team-Karagogeos lab. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate and she aims to explore the role of autophagy in CNS myelin during development using in vivo and in vitro approaches.

    Zuzana Kounoupa

    Zouzana obtained a B.Sc. in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Democritus University of Thrace and an M.Sc. in Neuroscience from the University of Crete, Greece. She joined the Karagogeos lab as a BSc student. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate working on the role of Rac1 and Rac3 small RhoGTPases in cortical interneuron development. She is using time-lapse imaging techniques as well as other state-of-the-art approaches such as electroporation in brain slices and ex vivo migration assays to uncover the cellular defects of interneurons lacking Rac1/3. She is also using -omics approaches to uncover downstream events.
