Panos is Professor of Cardiovascular Genomics at the William Harvey Research Institute, Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, Queen Mary University London. Panos led the Genetics of complex traits in humans group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute from 1994 to 2013, investigating both the extent of sequence variation in human populations and the functional consequences of specific variants in their contribution to complex traits including common disease and response to external stimuli, for example drugs. In particular, his team focused on the genetic predisposition of traits affecting coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction.
Panos was one of the founding members of the Human Genetics groups at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute when he joined as a group leader to help build the genetic maps for the Human Genome Project. His team made contributions first to the Human Genome Project by assembling the sequence map of chromosomes 10 & 20 and then to the International HapMap project by building SNP maps for quarter of the genome in four populations. His current research interests and work can be found on the Queen Mary University London website.
