 Ο Δρ. Γιάλλουρος είναι Καθηγητής Παιδιατρικής και Παιδιατρικής Πνευμονολογίας στην Ιατρική Σχολή του Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου από το 2016. Σπούδασε Ιατρική στο Πανεπιστήμιο Αθηνών με υποτροφίες του Ελληνικού Ιδρύματος Κρατικών Υποτροφιών (Ι.Κ.Υ.) και του Ιδρύματος ‘‘Anastasios G. Leventis’’ και εκπαιδεύτηκε στη γενική παιδιατρική στο Νοσοκομείο Παίδων ‘‘Π & Α Κυριακού’’ στην Αθήνα και στην παιδιατρική πνευμονολογία στο Νοσοκομείο St Thomas’ και στο Νοσοκομείο Παίδων Great Ormond Street στο Λονδίνο. Το 1997 εντάχθηκε στην Παιδιατρική Κλινική στο τριτοβάθμιο Νοσοκομείο για τη Μητέρα και το Παιδί “Αρχ Μακάριος ΙΙΙ” στη Λευκωσία και ίδρυσε την Παιδοπνευμονολογική Μονάδα την οποία διεύθυνε για 18 χρόνια έως το 2015. Από το 2005 έως το 2015 υπηρέτησε ως Adjunct Faculty και Επικεφαλής του ερευνητικού προγράμματος “Respiratory Diseases & The Environment” στο Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health, το οποίο δημιουργήθηκε με συμφωνία της Κυπριακής Κυβέρνησης και του Πανεπιστημίου Harvard.

Profile Information

Dr Yiallouros is the Professor of Pediatrics and Pediatric Pulmonology at the Medical School of the University of Cyprus since 2016. He studied Medicine at the University of Athens supported by scholarships of the Greek State Scholarships Foundation and the ‘‘A.G. Leventis Foundation’’ and trained in general pediatrics at the ‘‘P & A Kyriakou’’ Children’s Hospital in Athens and in pediatric pulmonology at St Thomas’ Hospital and the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children in London. In 1997 joined the Department of Pediatrics at the tertiary Archbishop Makarios III” Hospital in Nicosia and established the Pediatric Pulmonology Unit which he directed for 18 years. From 2005 till 2015 he served as an Adjunct Faculty and Head of the “Respiratory Diseases & The Environment Research Program” of the Cyprus International Institute for Environmental and Public Health (CII), a research institute that was established in Cyprus by an agreement of the Cyprus Government and Harvard University.
Over the last 12 years, Prof Yiallouros has acquired ten competitive research grants (European Union FP7, LIFE+, Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation X 2, International and other Local grants) bringing external funding exceeding 3 million euros. In eight of these grants he was the Principal Investigator or Work Package Leader.
To date, Prof Yiallouros’ published work includes 76 publications in PubMed Journals, which have received international recognition and now feature approximately 6000 citations, an h-index of 30 and total IF: >500.

Professor Yiallouros research agenda was developed in four major areas:

  1.        Epidemiological studies in child health in conditions such as asthma, obesity, vitamin D deficiency;
  2.        Cutting edge studies to understand important factors implicated in the development of asthma and comorbidities such as obesity, dyslipidemia and reduced activity, investigating particularly interactions of asthma with air pollution (especially desert dust storms), lifestyle factors (caesarean section delivery, vitamin D status) and genetic background,                       
  3.        Clinical studies on manifestations, diagnostics and outcomes of chronic pediatric lung conditions such as Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia and Cystic Fibrosis;
  4.        Consensus and policies papers on active and healthy ageing and respiratory disease management developed jointly with panels of experts from Europe and the world.
