George Psomas joined the editorial staff of Journal of Coordination Chemistry as an Associate Editor in July 2014.
George received his B.Sc. in Chemistry in 1993 and his Ph.D. in 2000 under the supervision of Professor Dimitris Kessissoglou at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He was postdoctoral researcher in 2002-2003 at CNRS Toulouse, France (Prof. Jean-Pierre Tuchagues) and for four years (2003-2007) at NCSR “Demokritos”, Athens, Greece (Dr Nikos Katsaros). In 2007, he was elected as a Lecturer Professor at Laboratory of Inorganic Chemistry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and he was promoted to Assistant Professor in 2013.
George’s current research interests cover a wide spectrum of Bioinorganic Chemistry, focusing on metal-drug interaction, the synthesis, characterization and biological activity of metal-drug complexes and their interaction with biomolecules. Since 2007, he has been the supervisor of ten M.Sc. and Ph.D. students and many more graduate students. George is the co-author of more than 70 published articles (including one review) and one textbook (Bioinorganic Chemistry, co-authored with Prof. Dimitris Kessissoglou). He is national representative in the COST action CM1105 “Functional metal complexes that bind to biomolecules” (2012-2016) and has active research collaborations with Universities and Research Centers in Greece (Univ. of Athens, Univ. of Thrace, Univ. of Patras, Univ. of Ioannina and NCSR “Demokritos” Athens) and Europe (Univ. of Ljubljana – Slovenia, Univ. of Belgrade – Serbia, Univ. of Groningen – The Netherlands and CIC San Sebastian – Spain).
