Bio

Dr. Kapetanaki earned a PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Crete, Greece for her work on transposable elements in Diptera. Subsequently, she worked for two years as Research Associate in the laboratory of Prof Sarah Elgin in Washington University in St Louis, where she studied chromatin regulation in Drosophila. In 2003, she joined the laboratory of Dr. Art Levine, University of Pittsburgh, where she studied mammalian cell DNA repair mechanisms in the context of chromatin. In September 2009 she became Research Assistant Professor in PACCM, University of Pittsburgh.  This position enables Dr. Kapetanaki to combine her extensive background in basic research with new endeavors in the realm of functional genomics.
