Anna studied Biology, with an emphasis on Cell/Molecular/Developmental Biology at the University of Crete, Greece. During her PhD in Queen Mary, University of London she worked on the knockout of Flavin-containing monoxygenase 5 (Fmo5) gene of the mouse, which eventually led to the identification of Fmo5 as a regulator of metabolic aging. As a Postdoc at the Universities of Ioannina, Greece and the University of Cambridge, UK she worked on the role of cell-surface receptors (Wnt/Notch/FGF4) and adherens junctions in the fate specification of mES cells and mES-derived multipotent cardiac progenitors. She also contributed in the development of an ES-cell-based expression and reporting system for the selection of antibodies affecting cell-surface receptor signalling and controlling stem cell differentiation. Anna joined the BMC Series as a Manuscript Editor in March 2019 and is based in Springer Nature‚Äôs London office.
