Summary

Dr. Iosif Pediaditakis is an Associate Director at Flagship Pioneering. Prior to this role, Dr. Pediaditakis was an Associate Director of Research at Emulate Inc., a Harvard spinoff, where he led the neuroscience team to develop next-generation tissue chip models of neuroinflammation and Parkinson's disease. He utilized induced pluripotent stem cells to incorporate blood vessel cells, neurons, astrocytes, and microglia into perfuseable micro-engineered 3D environments to model human brain function, blood-brain barrier physiology and uncover novel biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases. Before Emulate, Dr. Pediaditakis completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the Medical School of the University of Crete and the Institute of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas, where he spearheaded the development of a new family of synthetic, BBB-permeable neurotrophic receptor agonists as a potential treatment for a wide range of neurological disorders, including ALS, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Pediaditakis has broad expertise in neuropharmacology and Organs-on-Chips technology.
