Costas Anastassiou, Ph.D.
Costas Anastassiou leads the translational neuroscience program at the Allen Institute, focusing on understanding brain disorders such as epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease and developing novel therapies for these disoders (e.g. via neuroprosthetic interventions). Concurrently, Anastassiou’ team contributes to multiple other Institute programs.
After completing his undergraduate studies in chemical engineering at ETH Zurich, Anastassiou conducted his Ph.D. in the department of bioengineering at Imperial College London on CNS biosensing methodologies. He then joined Caltech as a postdoctoral fellow where he studied the origin and functionality of extracellular electric fields in brain circuits. Anastassiou has received a number of awards such as the SNSF early and advanced postodoctoral awards, the EPSRC LSI postdoctoral fellowship and the SNSF Professorship award.
