Dr. Asimakopoulos joined the Hematology/Oncology division on May 1, 2010. He was born in Pyrgos, Peloponnese Greece and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Cellular and Molecular Pathology from University of Bristol, United Kingdom. His Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery and Doctorate of Philosophy were received from University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. His residency was conducted at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. His fellowship was completed at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, NY. His research efforts focus on myeloma research and phase I experimental therapeutics. He will build on his previous work in the genetics of multiple myeloma, myeloma stem cells and the development of genetically engineered models for multiple myeloma. Fotis has previously contributed to the molecular mapping of 20q deletions (with Tony Green in Cambridge) and the epigenetics of clonal evolution of CML (with Dina Ben Yehuda in Jerusalem). With Harold Varmus he created a novel animal model for multiple myeloma. In addition Fotis is studying the genetic requirements for progression of myeloma and treatment response in the Vk*MYC myeloma model.
