    Nicholas Antonios Kalogriopoulos

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioNick's broad research interests are in developing tools and technologies for research and therapeutic applications. Nick obtained a B.S. in Genetics and Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. During his undergraduate career, he trained with Dr. Paul Sondel, where he worked on preclinical testing of novel immunotherapeutic agents for the treatment of neuroblastoma. He obtained a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science with Dr. Pradipta Ghosh, elucidating the structural basis of non-canonical G protein activation by a novel protein family of Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Modulators (GEMs). As a Postdoctoral Researcher with Professor Alice Ting at Stanford University, his current research focuses on developing a new system for programmable and user-controlled cellular behaviors for immuno-oncology applications.

    Gabriele Kockelkoren

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Genetics

    BioGabriele has a strong background in both physics and molecular biology and, accordingly, he strives in interdisciplinary environments. After completing a cum laude BSc. and MSc. in Nanobiology at the Technical University of Delft in The Netherlands, Gabriele pursued a PhD at the University of Copenhagen under the supervision of Prof. Dimitrios Stamou. In his PhD, Gabriele studied the nanoscale spatial organization of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) at the plasma membrane of living cells. Importantly, his work reveals heterogeneous spatial patterns of receptor density and activation, that are modulated in a drug-dependent manner. These findings identify GPCR spatial organization as an integral element of their activity and signaling. Currently, Gabriele is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the lab of Prof. Alice Ting developing programmable receptors for molecular sensing and controlling cellular behaviour.
