Michalis Konstantinidis studied at Kingston University, UK obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Biology in 2008. He then joined the team of Dr. Dagan Wells at University of Oxford where he carried out his doctoral studies in the subject of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and specifically, the development of new techniques and methodologies for the detection of genetic abnormalities in human preimplantation embryos. While conducting his doctoral studies, he assisted in the initiation and establishment of Reprogenetics UK highly successful single gene PGD program, while he was also involved in performing clinical cases for aneuploidy detection (preimplantation genetic screening). In 2014, he joined Reprogenetics in the USA, where he currently holds the position of the Senior Scientist.
Dr Konstantinidis’s current role at Reprogenetics includes the supervision of the molecular department carrying out clinical cases for PGD of single gene disorders, and he is also involved in research and development. Dr. Konstantinidis has been involved in different studies in the field of Reproductive Genetics presented at international conferences and published in scientific papers. His work has been recognized with award prizes, including the Society of Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) prize paper (2011).
