Five world leading Greek scientists, aged under 40, who excel at American universities, received huge recognition at the 2019 Bodossaki Foundation scientific awards.

The Prize in Applied Science / Technology was awarded to Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Konstantinos Daskalakis. In the field of Social Sciences, the awards were given to Professor at the University of Minnesota, Lucas Karabarbounis, as well as Professor at Brown University, Stelios Michalopoulos. In the field of Basic Sciences, the award was received by Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, John Bourbakis. The Life Sciences Prize was awarded to the Associate Professor at the University of Mount Sinai Medical School in New York, Panayiotis Roussos.

Konstantinos Daskalakis, a world-leading Greek scientist, outlined his plan to create a state-of-the-art international artificial intelligence research center in Greece, during a charity organization event. Daskalakis, who is a member of MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, focused on the topic of “How Information Technology Changed the World around Us”. Daskalakis said he is on a mission to create a research center with approximately 30 researchers and 150 students. It will be a privately funded charity and will focus on artificial intelligence.

Eleni Antoniadou is Co-Founder of “Transplants Without Donors” and Researcher at “NASA/ESA”. Her academic fields are Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine.
She’s one of the scientists who believe that in the close future transplantation organs will be developed from the patients’ cells offering the advantage of minimum possibilities for being rejected by the patients’ body.
Moreover, she is an innovator in regerative medicine technology, currently allowing the monitoring of donor-free organs transplantation, being also the co-founder of “Transplants Without Donors”.

George Velmahos is a Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and he is internationally acknowledged as a top scientist in his field. Moreover, he’s the Division Chief of Trauma, Emergency Surgery and Surgical Critical Care at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

Konstantinos Daskalakis, the mathematician, who at the age of 27 solved the riddle of Nash, Professor of the prestigious MIT University, is now honored with one of the most important awards in mathematics, the Rolf Nevanlinna Prize.

Panos N. Patakoukas, a professor at the Haas School of Business at the University of Berkeley of California was named professor of the year at UC Berkeley’s community. This distinction not only reflects the recognition of his colleagues at the University but also his popularity among the students, some of whom are older than him and hold high positions in the business world.

Four Greek scientists are among those to have been elected to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences (NAS), two as members and two as foreign associates.

A postgraduate student at the film directing program of UCLA, Greek-American Alithia Avramis realized her dream thanks to crowdfunding- a practice born out of the current financial crisis and made possible thanks to new technologies.
