Prof. Georgios Theodoridis is a Professor of Analytical Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, AUTh, Greece. He studied Chemistry (1990) and received his PhD (1994) in separations sciences from the Aristotle University. He then studied theoretical aspects of separation sciences at the Universities of Pardubice University (1994-1995) and chromatography of taxane drugs and immunoaffinity separations in Leiden University (1995-1997, 1999). He returned to AUTh as a post-doctoral researcher, where he subsequently was employed as lecturer (2000), assistant professor (2004), associate professor (2011) and full professor (2015). His work experience includes a yearly (2006-2007) sabbatical leave to AstraZeneca (Chesire, UK) on the development of metabonomic tools for biomarker discovery and a metabolomics group leader position at IASMA, Edmund Mach Foundation, Trento, Italy (2009-2010).
His interests are on the development of LC-MS and GC-MS methodologies for metabolite profiling and bioanalysis. He leads the BIOMIC initiative of AUTh. He has co-authored ca. 170 peer reviewed articles, 20 book chapters and made more than 150 presentations in international meetings. His works have attracted more than 11000 citations, and he has an h-index of 54. He serves as Editor of J. Chromatography B, and in the editorial board of Metabolites, Open Journal Biochemistry, J. Integrated Omics, and Separations. He participates in national and global think tanks and organisations (Food platform SEV, Eurachem, mQACC).
He introduced new technologies in bionalysis in Greece: MIPs, SPME, LC-MS metabolomics and others. He has coordinated more than 30 research grants including the FoodOmicsGR national research infrastructure.
