He serves as the Scientific Advisor of two biotechnological companies in Greece and co-founder of one. He is currently offering services within the University of Patras for autoimmune diseases’ diagnosis and biochemical/chemical analysis.

He has worked for 20 years in order to understand the structure and function of Acetylcholine Receptor(s) and its interaction with autoantibodies or monoclonal antibodies. He has studied the molecular structure of monoclonal antibodies and fragments of the acetylcholine receptor. In addition, he has developed two new methodologies for the crystallization of proteins, for one of which he is having an international patent. It is the last three years that he is working with a new scientific area, called ELECTROCEUTICALS. He is studying the effect of Wireless Microcurrent Stimulation (WMCS) technology and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) technology on wound healing, burns, and pain. For the last three years, he has started a totally different research project, studying and analyzing the e-liquids (before and after vaping) and also the effects of vaping at the molecular, cellular and histological levels.
