Artemis Stamboulis is a Professor in Biomaterials. She has published over 80 peer review papers in scientific journals as well as reviews and book chapters in the field of biomaterials. She has received major grants from Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe often as coordinator.

She has research interests in the development of antimicrobial materials as well as the microstructural characterisation of ceramics and glasses for biomedical application. Artemis has an active research group and has supervised to completion of more than 60 postgraduate students.

Artemis teaches Biomaterials at both undergraduate and postgraduate level (MSc/MRes in Biomaterials/Materials Science and Engineering).


  • PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, 1997
  • MSc in Polymer Science and Technology, UMIST, 1992
  • BSc in Chemistry, Kapodistrian University of Athens, 1989


Artemis obtained a BSc in Chemistry (Biochemistry) from the Kapodistrian University of Athens, an MSc in Polymer Science and Technology from UMIST and a PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1997.

She then worked in the Department of Materials at Imperial College as a Marie Curie Research Fellow and later as Research Fellow developing glasses for biomedical applications until 2003, when she accepted a position as Lecturer in Nanotechnology in NIBEC, University of Ulster. In 2005, she moved to the University of Birmingham as Birmingham Fellow. In 2012 she became Senior Lecturer, followed by a Readership in 2021 and since 2022, she is a Professor in Biomaterials.

Artemis has expertise in the area of Biomaterials and Nanomaterials, and her’ main research interests are in the microstructural characterisation of materials for biomedical applications as well as in multifunctional materials with emphasis in orthopaedic antimicrobial materials. Artemis coordinated a 3-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie RISE programme, NEXT-3D and she was a PI and beneficiary in a Marie Curie ITN DOC-3D-Printing project.

In this project, her team developed 3D printed orthopaedic extremities using DLP and SLA based methods. She is also conducting research on ceramic powder development for SLS of ceramics in collaboration with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry. Artemis is also currently coordinating a Marie Sklodowska Curie ITN AIMed Antimicrobial Integrated Methodologies project (grant agreement 861138, AIMed), aiming to develop novel antimicrobial materials based on antimicrobial peptides. She is also the scientific coordinator of a Horizon Europe research project STOP.

Artemis is associated with the Institute of Healthcare Technologies and she was a funded scientific member of the Surgical Reconstruction and Microbiology Research Centre in Birmingham to develop bioinspired antimicrobial inks for 3D bioprinting.

Main Research Themes

Biomedical glasses and glass ceramics

Artemis is interested in the structural characterisation of amorphous materials and specifically in the development and characterisation of biomedical glasses. Current research is based on modifying a series of glass compositions by component substitutions with metal oxides that are known for their antimicrobial properties, e.g. oxides of the lanthanide series. She is currently working with borate-silicate, silicate and aluminosilicate glasses that also exhibit luminescence properties for use in diagnostic medical devices.

Antimicrobial materials

Artemis has a strong interest in the development of novel antimicrobial materials based on antimicrobial peptides similar to human defensins. Apart from synthesising new peptide sequences, she is also interested in the immobilisation of these peptides on material surfaces (metals, polymers, ceramics). For this purpose, she is also using surface modification techniques such as plasma treatment. She is currently developing antimicrobial bioinks for 3D printing.

3D-printing of multifunctional ceramics for biomedical applications

Artemis is  currently working on the 3D printing of ceramic multifunctional materials for biomedical applications with main interest in SLS and SLA (DLP). Part of her work is also the development of ceramic powders for direct laser 3D printing.
