Dr. Alevriadou received her BS in Chemical Engineering from the Aristotle University, Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1986 and her PhD in Chemical Engineering (Bioengineering & Biosciences Institute) from Rice University, Houston, TX in 1992. Following postdoctoral training in the Department of Molecular & Experimental Medicine at Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, she joined the BME Department at Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, as Assistant Professor. In 2003, she joined the BME Center (BME Department, since 2008) and Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute of The Ohio State University as Associate Professor of BME and Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Medicine. In 2019, she joined the University at Buffalo - The State University of New York as Empire Innovation Professor in BME. Her research on vascular mechanobiology, endothelial mechanotransduction, intracellular signaling, and mitochondrial function is/has been supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the American Heart Association (AHA). Dr. Alevriadou is a member of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) (1994-present; elected member on the Board of Directors, 2014-2017), Society for Redox Biology & Medicine (SfRBM), North American Vascular Biology Organization (NAVBO), American Physiological Society (APS), and AHA. She regularly reviews for federal/local funding agencies (NIH, NSF, AHA) and biomedical and cardiovascular journals. She serves on the Editorial Board of the American Journal of Physiology-Cell Physiology (2002-present; Associate Editor, 2019-2021), the NAVBO Vascular Biology Publications Alert (2022-present), and Physiological Reports (2023-present).
