    Nikolaos Skartsis, MD, PhD obtained his MD/ PhD degree from University of Patras Medical School and pursued Post-Doctoral research fellowship in transplant immunology at Harvard Medical School. He completed an Internal Medicine Residency at the Albert Einstein Medical Center before undertaking fellowship training in Nephrology at University of California San Francisco.

    The main focus of his research is on T cell biology and specifically to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms that promote the survival and function of regulatory T cells. Understanding the mechanisms of regulatory T cell survival and function will help design novel cell therapies in transplantation and autoimmune diseases.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
