Biography

Dr. Kyriakides completed a PhD at Washington State University in 1993. He did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington. His lab at Yale studies the molecular events that dictate the foreign body response to biomaterials. In addition, Dr. Kyriakides studies nanomaterials and cell interactions with a focus on biosensing. Finally, ongoing efforts in the lab include vascular engineering and engineering of tissue constructs to stimulate healing in diabetic wounds. He is Director of Graduate Studies for the Experimental Pathology PhD program. He also serves as a mentor for students from the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
