Profile Information

Bsc. in Chemistry, University of Ioannina, Department of Chemistry, Greece, 1984-1988Ph.D. in Chemistry, University of Ioannina, Department of Chemistry, Greece, 1988-1992PostDoc., Colorado State University, Department of Chemistry, Fort Collins, USA, 1994-1997Lecturer at the University of Cyprus, 1997 - 2001Assistant Professor at the University of Cyprus, 2001 - 2006Associate Professor at the University of Cyprus, 2006 - up to nowKeramidas graduated from the Department of Chemistry at University of Ioannina in 1988. During the four years undergraduate studies he was awarded four times with the fellowship for the outstanding undergraduate students from the Greek National Fellowship Institute. He received the Ph.D. from the same University in 1992 under the supervision of Prof. T. Kabanos for research related to the bioinorganic chemistry of vanadium and more specifically in modeling the interaction of amide/peptide group with vanadium(III/IV/V) ions. He served the Greek Army from 1992 to 1994. In 1994 he moved to Colorado State University where he worked in the design and synthesis of new antidiabetic vanadium based drugs under the supervision of Dr. D. Crans. He came at the University of Cyprus in 1997. At that time the Chemistry Department in Cyprus had only three faculty members and as the first inorganic chemist at the University of Cyprus, Keramidas’s priority was to organize the Inorganic Chemistry teaching courses, labs and research. In 1998 the six faculty members of the fast growing new Chemistry Department established the first Graduate Programme in Chemistry, opening the doors for the creation of the first research groups. He is currently the head of the Chemistry Department at the University of Cyprus and he has served the University from several posts, for example he was elected member of the senate, elected member of the council of the school of the pure and applied science, elected member of the senate committee for the safety, in charge of the undergraduate program of the department etc. He participated also in other committees such as the science committee for elementary school, other educational committees for high school students etc.Currently his research group is consisted from one postdoctoral researcher, and two graduate students. Eight Ph.D. students have graduated (one got an academic position at Cyprus University of Technology) and two masters. The last four years his research group has been funded (~800000 €) mainly from the Cyprus Research Foundation, European Union and the pharmaceutical companies Yasoo Health Inc. (USA), Yasoo Health Ltd (Cyprus). His research work has been published in international scientific journals (51 publications cited 830 times), books (3 chapters in books) and one application has been patented. He has presented his work orally in more than 50 conferences, in 12 of them he was invited speaker. He has reviewed more that 50 papers submitted to ACS, VCH-Wiley, Elsevier journals and other publishers, two proposals from funding organizations and two proposals for new spin-off R&D companies. He is associate editor of the Hindawi Journal Bioinorganic Chemistry and Applications. He collaborates with scientist from several Universities and Research Institutes. Some of them are: Colorado State University, University of Ioannina, University of Patras, University of Crete, University of Thessaloniki, University of Adelaide, ETH, NCSR 'Demokritos'.
His current research is focusing:1) Synthesis, spectroscopic, NMR and single crystal X-ray characterization and reactivity of bioinorganic models, 2) Binding and activation of inert molecules (CO2) from biomimetic molecules and heteropolyoxometalates, 3) Interaction of metal ions with quinones, focusing on the photochemical properties, 4) Chemistry and photochemistry of organic lanthanides with applications in OLEDs and solar spectrum condensation, 5) Design and synthesis of organic molecules that selectively bind metal ions, separation of Uranyl ion from radionuclear wastes, 6) Synthesis of functionalized with selective organic metal ligators silicates with applications in synthesis of filters for removal of metals from water or wastes 7) Synthesis and anticancer properties of Selenium-tocopherol / tocotrienol conjugated molecules.
