Angeliki Lambrou

Doctor of Science in Epidemiology and Environmental Health
KEELPNO – Hellenic Centre for Disease Control and Prevention

My name is Angeliki Lambrou and I am an epidemiologist. Since my early student years I had a special interest in health and I was happy to study nursing at the University of Athens, Greece. During my postgraduate studies in Public Health I had the opportunity to explore my growing interest in Epidemiology and continued my studies at a doctoral level in Harvard University, Boston, USA from where I graduated with a Doctor of Science in Epidemiology and Environmental Health.  My research focused on exposure to metals, epigenetic mechanisms and cognitive function. Currently, I am working as the head of the Laboratory-based Surveillance Office in the Department of Epidemiological Surveillance and Intervention of the Hellenic Center for Disease Control and Prevention located in Athens, Greece. My everyday work involves coordinating and implementing lab-based surveillance, designing and initiating web-based applications in the national surveillance systems, updating sentinel surveillance systems as well as participating in outbreak investigations and research projects. Being an EPIET supervisor as well as a member of the Medi-PIET Scientific Advisory Board for more than a year now has also been a welcome addition to my work-life.
