Dear colleagues and students,

On behalf of the editorial team, I hereby welcome you to “AΡΙΣΤΕΙΑ”, the e-Newsletter of the Graduate Program “The Molecular Basis of Human Diseases” of the University of Crete Medical School.

In this Newsletter, we highlight some of the miscellaneous activities of our program during the past years including teaching, research, meetings, graduations, awards as well as news. In the section “Meet our students” we are hosting interviews with graduate students who share with us their experience from the graduate program. The “Meet our faculty” section describes the profiles of new faculty members of the program who bring their expertise and enthusiasm. Summaries of some of the outstanding papers published by our faculty and students are also summarized under the section “Research Activities”.

Our latest issue of ΑΡΙΣΤΕΙΑ (November 2021) can be found here.

We hope that you will enjoy reading our Newsletter and wish you all a fruitful academic year!
