Evangelos Kolettas is an Assistant Professor of physiology with emphasis on molecular physiology at the Cell and Molecular Physiology Unit of the Laboratory of Physiology, School of Medicine, University of Ioannina, Greece (2003). He is also an Associate Member and Group Leader (Molecular Senescence and Carcinogenesis Group) at the Laboratory of Stem Cell Biology and Differentiation at the Biomedical Research Institute-Foundation of Research and Technology-Hellas (BRI-FORTH), Ioannina, Greece (2007). Kolettas holds a higher national degree in applied biology from the Department of Biology, Sunderland Polytechnic (1983), a B.S. degree with honors in biochemistry from the Department of Biochemistry, King’s College London (KCL), University of London (1986), and a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from King’s College London, University of London/Genetics Division, MRC National Institute for Medical Research, London (1991). He received his postdoctoral training at the Department of Biochemistry, Charing Cross and Westminster Hospital Medical School, University of London and at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research/Biochemistry, University of Manchester. Kolettas worked as a Lecturer (407/80) at the Department of Biochemistry, School of Medicine, University of Thessaly and at the Department of Agricultural Biotechnology, Agricultural University of Athens, Greece and as a Professor TEI of chemistry and biochemistry at TEI of Epirus, Greece. His research interests focus on the role of oncogenic stress and NF-kappaB signaling pathways on DNA damage responses leading to cellular senescence and apoptosis and on cancer development and progression.
