Constantinos Giaginis was born in Athens, Greece, in 1979. He received a Chemistry degree from the Department of Chemistry, University of Athens, M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, School of Pharmacy, and a Ph.D. degree from the Medical School, University of Athens. Presently, he is a Lecturer in the Department of Food Science and Nutrition, University of the Aegean, Greece. He is mainly interested in the research areas of human physiology and pathophysiology. His research focuses on the clinical evaluation of new biomarkers and molecular mediators in several pathophysiological disease states, such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, and cancer. His research interest also includes the development of quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) and quantitative structure-property relationships (QSPRs) in the area of toxicology and pharmacology. Furthermore, his research interest lies in the assessment of physicochemical properties, such as lipophilicity, solubility, and ionization of drugs, natural bioactive compounds and toxic chemicals in relation with their biological activity and toxicity, as well as their Absorption/Distribution/Metabolism/Excretion (ADME) parameters and their pharmacokinetic and toxicokinetic profile.
