Full Curriculum Vitae
Prof. Artemis Hatzigeorgiou received an MSE. in Computer Science from the University of Stuttgart and a PhD. in Molecular Biology from the University of Jena in 2001. In the same year she joined the University of Pennsylvania (Upenn) as assistant professor of bioinformatics with a joined appointment at the department of Genetics, Medical School and the Department of Computer and Information Science (CIS) at the Engineering School. At 2007 she joined as Principal Investigator the Institute of Molecular Oncology, at the B.S.R.C. “Alexander Fleming” and was elected adjunct professor at the CIS department of the University of Pennsylvania. Artemis Hatzigeorgiou received at 2003 the Early Carrier Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) of the USA.
She is co-author of the Stuttgart Neural Network Simulator (SNNS), a world - wide used open-source software for the simulation of Artificial Neural Networks. In 2003 she developed DIANA-microT, one of the first published microRNA target prediction programs. She has published in top tier journals as Nature, Science, PNAS, AJHG and G&D and has served as a panelist for NSF and the National Institute of Health of the USA. She is since 1996 the co-founder of the computer science company Synaptic, Ltd, located at Herakleion, Crete.
