Manolis Tsiknakis received the B.Eng. degree in Electric and Electronic Engineering, in 1983, the M.Sc. degree in Microprocessor Engineering, in 1985, and the Ph.D. degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Bradford, Bradford, U.K., in 1989, where he worked as a teaching research assistant until 1991. From February of 1992 until January 2012 he was a Principal Researcher and Head of the Center of eHealth Technologies lab at the Institute of Computer Science, Foundation for Research and Technology–Hellas, Greece. Since February of 2012 he is an Associate Professor at the Technological Educational Institute of Crete and the Head of Biomedical Informatics and eHealth lab (www.bmi.teicrete.gr) and an affiliate researcher at the Computational Medicine laboratory of FORTH.
He has coordinated many collaborate EU funded research projects, and has been the technical coordinator of a large scale national effort for the development of HYGEIAnet, the regional health information network of Crete. Recently, Dr Tsiknakis has been the scientific coordinator of an EU funded integrated project (ACGT - Advancing Clinico-Genomic Trials on Cancer) focusing on the development of innovative ICT solutions supporting large scale translational research on Cancer. He is also involved in a series of R&D projects in the domain of cancer biomarker discovery and translational medicine.
He has been the initiator and chair of the Biomedical Informatics Working Group of the European Research Consortium in Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM). He has acted as the Editor of Special Issues in the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics; he is a member of the Editorial Board of the Open Medical Informatics Journal and the International Journal of Telemedicine and Applications, and a member of the programme committee in numerous high-profile conferences. He has been a key note speaker in important IEEE conferences, and also acts as a regular reviewer for a number of scientific journal and conferences. He has been a member of the Advisory Board in several FP6 and FP7 projects; currently he is chairing the Advisory Board to the EHR4CR (http://www.ehr4cr.eu/) project funded by the Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) programmed.
He has published extensively - over 160 papers in refereed scientific journals and conferences - on issues related to the application of innovative Information and Communication Technologies in the domain of biomedicine, clinical and translational research, care and wellness management.
His current research interests include biomedical informatics and engineering; service oriented SW architectures and their application in biomedicine; approaches for semantic health data integration; enterprise integration strategies and patterns; affective computing, smart eHealth and mHealth service platforms.
