Research Groups

The Microwave and Fiber Optics Laboratory accommodates a number of research groups that include a number of researchers, graduate student researchers and often involves undergraduate researchers too.

i-sense Group

The I-SENSE Group is very active in a number of Scientific and Research Areas with main Application Areas the Intelligent Transportation Systems, Virtual Environments, Assistive Technologies as well as Smart Integrated Systems & Communication. I-SENSE is involved in a number of EC and National Research Projects and has a significant presence in International Conferences and Scientific Journals.

 The In Silico Oncology and In Silico Medicine Group

The mission of the group is:

  • To develop multiscale, four dimensional, patient specific computer simulation models of the biological behaviour (dynamics) of malignant tumours and treatment affected normal tissues as well as their response to treatment modalities.
  • To better understand the hypercomplex “natural phenomenon” of cancer.
  • To investigate new cancer fighting stategies.
  • To clinically validate multiscale tumour models in collaboration with clinical centres.
  • To simulate clinical trials.
  • To design, develop and clinically validate oncosimulators.
  • To optimize the planning of various therapeutic schemes in the patient individualized context by using oncosimulators.


The group is led by Research Professor George Stamatakos.

Biomedical Informatics Group, BIO-MIG

The Bio-MIG was formed in 1996, and since then it is actively involved in research and development of various techniques related to the medical image processing software and medical informatics. It is strongly co-operated with various clinics and National and Private Hospital in Greece and Europe.

The main areas of involvement of the Bio-MIG are the followings:

  • Medical Image Processing
  • Digital Biosignal Processing
  • Automatic Registration and Fusion of Multidimensional Medical Data
  • Visualization of Medical Data
  • Optimization Techniques and Application to Bioinformatics
  • Development of Decision Support Systems in Medicine
  • Medical Information Systems
  • Tele-medicine Applications

Since 1996, the Bio-MIG has been extensively involved in various projects, National and European projects, and research activities for processing medical data.


The group is led by Assistant Professor George Matsopoulos.
