After receiving her Bachelor's degree in Greece, Marina moved to the U.S to obtain her Master’s degree at Smith College working on repeat-based diagnostics for soil transmitted helminths (STH). After receiving her Master's, she decided to stay in the lab to continue her work on molecular diagnostics and travel to Argentina (Salta and Orán) conducting field work for the STH diagnostic project.
