Dr Pavlu is the clinical lead for acute leukaemia and myelodysplastic syndromes at Hammersmith Hospital, a leading haematological institute with a strong academic record in treating blood cancers.
His medical career started in 1998 and he has worked in leading haematology centres both here in the UK and abroad. He completed his haematological training at the Royal Free and Hammersmith Hospitals. Since then he has worked in the Imperial College NHS trust, providing consultant services to St. Mary’s and Hammersmith Hospitals.
In 2009 he became the clinical lead for acute leukaemia and has developed services at Hammersmith hospital in both clinical care and research. Dr Pavlu is the principal investigator on several acute leukaemia and transplantation trials.
He is also the stem cell transplantation clinical and collection facility director at Hammersmith Hospital. He is an inspector for the Joint Accreditation Committee for International Society for Cellular Therapy and European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation and ensures that centres maintain high levels of safety and quality when providing transplantation services.
Dr Pavlu’s broad training background and current specialised role means that he can provide the perfect combination of high-level diagnostics and individualised cutting-edge care.
