Summarised biography:
Paul Giangrande is consultant haematologist at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust and is Director of the Oxford Haemophilia Centre. He is a member of the Nuffield Department of Medicine in the University of Oxford. He qualified in Medicine from the University of Manchester in 1979 after previously obtaining a First Class Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in pharmacology. After obtaining postgraduate qualifications in both adult and paediatric medicine he trained in haematology in various major hospitals in London. He obtained a research doctorate in 1991 for his work at the Royal Free Hospital in London on immunological aspects of haemophilia treatment. He subsequently worked at the Milan Haemophilia Centre with Professor Mannucci between 1989-1990 before being appointed to his current position in Oxford in 1991. He served as elected Vice President (Medical) of the World Federation of Hemophilia from 2000 to 2008 inclusive and has wide international experience in the field. He is Chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the European Haemophilia Consortium (EHC) and serves as examiner in haematology for the Royal College of Pathologists.       

Summary of clinical work in current position:
I work exclusively in the field of haemostasis and thrombosis at the Oxford Haemophilia & Thrombosis Centre. The Centre is located within the Churchill Hospital, an integral part of the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. Our department is a designated Comprehensive Care Centre for bleeding disorders and we treat more patients with haemophilia than any other centre in the UK. We provide a 24-hour specialist multidisciplinary clinical and laboratory service for both adults and children with a wide range of congenital and acquired disorder of coagulation. Many of our patients have related complications such as HIV infection and/or hepatitis as well as orthopaedic problems. We cover a large catchment area in central southern England, primarily the counties of Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire and Northamptonshire. We also provide a diagnostic and treatment service for patients with deep venous thrombosis and supervise the anticoagulation of approximately 6500 patients at any one time. We have an active clinical research programme, with examples of current projects including long-acting coagulation factors and oral thrombin inhibitors.
