Spyridon Champeris Tsaniras is a postdoctoral researcher at the Center of Basic Research at the University of Patras in Rio, Patras, Greece. His research interests include regenerative medicine, stem cells and cancer biology.

He is a proponent of open access publishing and firmly believes that the current pre-publication peer review system is severely flawed. Toward this end, he has been designing and evaluating new models of peer review, incorporating larger numbers of fellow scientists while detaching from the classic "reviewer-author" scheme.
