Lito received her BSc in Mathematics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece and her MSc in Systems and Synthetic Biology at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland UK. She is currently doing her Ph.D. in the area of Systems Immunology at the Helmholtz Center for Infection Research in Braunschweig, Germany. For her Ph.D. she has used mathematical modelling to optimize treatment protocols against chronic Staphylococcus aureus infections and conducted experiments to verify her model-driven treatment protocols, which were 100% successful. For her study she has a pending patent in the European Patent Office. Lito has also worked on mathematical modelling of colon cancer and subsequent experiments of model-driven treatments showed reduction of tumors by 67%. In 2019 she participated in the 9th Integrated Mathematical Oncology Workshop: Tumor Board Evolution (IMO9) at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida, USA, where she and her team won the first prize for their work in glioblastomas.
