Dr. Andreas Ioannides is a neuroscientist with physics background. He started his research career in theoretical nuclear physics and worked in this field for over 10 years in the UK. In 1987 he expanded his research into the inverse problem in biomagnetism, within a few years moving his research work entirely to application studies of magnetoencephalography (MEG) in neuroscience. He made contributions to the biomagnetic inverse problem, pioneering new analysis methods of MEG data, including magnetic field tomography (MFT). In 1989, MFT produced the first millisecond by millisecond tomographic descriptions of brain activity and has remained the supreme method for accurate spatiotemporal localization producing significant new insights today on early processing of stimuli in the brain. Dr. Ioannides had up two theory teams in the UK (1988-1998). For three years (1995-1998) he had ran a theory team in the UK and headed in parallel the MEG laboratory at the Institute of Medicine, Jülich Research Center in Germany. As a team leader at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute in Japan (1998-2009), he established and headed the Laboratory for Human Brain Dynamics throughout its ten year life-time. During this period, he completed a series of pioneering applications and initiated numerous international collaborations. Since 2009, he has set up a new team in Cyprus, continuing some of the basic neuroscience work that started in Japan and building a multimodal approach to the exquisite MEG capabilities. His present research emphasis is on the translation of basic research results, often obtained with the most sophisticated and expensive equipments, to personalized health monitoring and clinical applications with inexpensive and widely available devices. Dr. Ioannides has published well over 100 scientific papers, organized international conferences and special symposia and presented his work as invited and key note lecturer in numerous international meetings.
