Biologist - Bioinformatician
Leto Kyritsi studied Molecular Biology and Genetics, and obtained an MSc in Biosystems and Informatics from the University of Liverpool.
In Liverpool she did protein expression research for the University's Department
of Medicine (Oncology Research Unit & TheRyte anti-cancer drug discovery company) where she initiated a project for modelling
protein-protein interaction networks in normal vs. cancer cells as scale-free networks.
She was a member of the Biocomputation and Computational Biology Group, led by Ray Paton,
with whom she collaborated for the "Multidisciplinary Approaches to Theory in Medicine"
book series (Elsevier Science).
She is a doctoral student at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Department of Chemistry,
under the supervision of Profs. Theodora Choli-Papadopoulou, Stergios Logothetidis and Aristea Pantazaki. Her research entails investigating
the biochemistry of ultradilute solutions and the effect of ultradilute solutions on cells and tissues of various types.

MSc thesis: "Analysis, design and implementation of a program to explore ecologies of biological information on the
World Wide Web". The project entailed the construction of a tool for extensive interaction with the Web and automated
textual data mining and analysis, and was implemented in Python.
