Dr. Christos Papadelis Joins UTA Bioengineering as a Professor of Research
The UTA Bioengineering Department is pleased to announce that it is adding Dr. Christos Papadelis to it's roster as a Professor of Research. Papadelis brings with him many years of experience mapping and imaging the human brain.
Papadelis is the Founding Director of Research at the Jane and John Justin Neuroscience Center of Cook Children's Health Care System, a Professor of Research in Bioengineering at the University of Texas at Arlington, and a Professor of Pediatrics in Texas Christian University School of Medicine. Dr. Papadelis has more than 15 years of experience in magnetoencephalography (MEG) and high-density electroencephalography technology with both adults and children. He has received the Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1998, and his MSc and Ph.D. in Medical Informatics, in 2001 and 2005 respectively, from the same institute. After his Ph.D. graduation, he worked as Research Scientist at Brain Science Institute of RIKEN, Japan, from 2005 to 2008, and as Post-Doc Research Fellow in the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences, Italy, from 2008 to 2011. Back in 2011, he joined Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital as an Instructor in Neurology and Manager of the BabyMEG facility, one of the very few MEG laboratories in the world fully dedicated to pediatric research. In 2015, Dr. Papadelis was promoted to Assistant Professor of Pediatrics and initiated the Clinical MEG Program. Since 2019, Dr. Papadelis is with Cook Children's Health Care System where he leads the newly founded research center for neurosciences, and the University of Texas at Arlington.
His research covers a broad range of studies in neuroscience, clinical neurophysiology, and biomedical engineering. Dr. Papadelis has over 70 peer-reviewed research investigation articles, including papers in Annals of Neurology, Neuroimage, and Human Brain Mapping, as well as numerous articles in conference proceedings. In more than half of these papers he is either first or last author. He is an Academic Editor in PLoS One, ad-hoc reviewer in over 50 journals, as well as guest editor in special issues of his field. Figures of his work have been selected as covers for scientific journals. He has received funding from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the American Epilepsy Society, the European Union, and several national and regional foundations.
