George Zachos completed his PhD at the University of Crete and received postdoctoral training at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research, Glasgow, U.K. investigating DNA damage checkpoint mechanisms. In 2008, he moved to the Department of Biology of the University of Crete in Greece as an Assistant Professor in Cell Biology, became Associate Professor in 2015 and continues to hold this position today. Discoveries from the Zachos lab have identified novel mechanisms of the mitotic spindle and abscission checkpoints during cell division in human cells. He has published 39 papers in leading scientific journals and has received 2000 citations.
