Ioanna Keklikoglou

Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research, School of Life Sciences, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland

Ioanna Keklikoglou is a senior post-doctoral scientist at the tumor microenvironment laboratory led by Prof Michele De Palma, at the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research, which is integrated into the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). Our laboratory has a long-standing interest in studying the interactions between malignant cells and the normal host tissues in which tumors arise, progress and develop to metastatic disease.

During her post-doctoral training, IK has developed an active interest in the cross talk between malignant cells and the vascular system, immune cells, and secreted extracellular vesicles, and the mechanisms whereby these heterotypic interactions regulate tumor progression in experimental cancer models.IK has a BSc in Biology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) and holds a PhD in Molecular Biology from the Ruprecht-Karls University of Heidelberg (Germany).
