I completed high school in Athens, Greece and BS, MS and PhD degrees in Pharmacology in the US. After post-doctoral studies at Yale, I spend the next 32 years at the Medical College of Georgia where I founded the Vascular Biology Center. I moved to ODU in 2013. I am married to Dr. Chrstiana Dimitropoulou and have two daughters.
