Dr. Evangelia Avramidou (EA-Female) is a researcher of Hellenic Agricultural Organization Demeter interested in plant biodiversity, plant molecular population genetics and epigenetics. She has worked on DNA markers (SSR, AFLP,) and DNA sequencing techniques applied in population genetic and epigenetic studies in a number of forest and agricultural species. She was awarded a Heracleitus PhD scholarship by the European Social Fund and the Hellenic National Fund.
Dr. Georgia Tanou (GT-Female) has selected as researcher in the field of Fruit Science for NAGREF (National Agricultural Foundation of Greece). She has been invited to represent Greece at International plant proteomics organisation (INPPO http://inppo.com). Georgia Tanou has been author of 32 research papers and she has received over 909 citations (h index 15). She has coordinated or participated in 13 funded research projects and in 2 European COST actions.

Dr. Eirini Sarrou (ES-Female) is researcher of Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources- Hellenic Agricultural Organization Demeter. She gained her PhD that focused on evaluating parameters such as biotic stress (drought and salinity), plant growth regulators/biostimulators, and genetic background affecting the products of secondary metabolism (essential oil and phenolics) from Citrus species. The last years her scientific background focus on advanced metabolomics (metabolite profiling using UPLC-Q-TOF, UPLC-MS-MS, HPLC-DAD, GC-MS) as tools for breeding of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs), while also their combination to conventional breeding strategies. She has published 12 articles as first author and was holder of one national postdoctoral research project and one postdoc fellowship. For this reason she will collaborate with AX under the supervision/cooperation with Dr. Stefan Martens and Dr. Athanasios Molasiotis.
