About us


We are a small yet dynamic community of faculty and students within the Department of Medicine of the University of Ioannina. Our core education mission is to provide undergraduate training to Medical students in the fields of Medical Physics and Medical Informatics. We also provide undergraduate and postgraduate training to physicists and other science and engineering graduates towards a career in research or service at the health sector. Alongside, we conduct research in several subfields of Medical Physics, including Medical Radiation Physics, Biomedical Optics and Biophysics, Medical Imaging, Image Analysis and Machine Learning. We are proud for maintaining an internationally recognized high quality research as revealed by the number of peer-reviewed papers published by our faculty and their citation metrics.

We are most thankful to our undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students who play a vital role in our research activities by conducting their thesis project under the mentorship of a faculty member of our Laboratory. It is our priority to provide our students an inspiring and supportive learning environment and assist them to discover their true academic potential.

Please enjoy browsing through our website and if you have any questions or further interest in Medical Physics, please feel free to get in touch or stop by our Laboratory.
