Dr Gleb Ivanov comes from a family of haematologists: both of his parents were involved in Haematology, as well is his brother.
After completing his undergraduate medical training and obtaining a PhD in Haematology/Biochemistry, Dr Ivanov was very fortunate to be awarded the Royal Society Postdoctoral Fellowship in order to undertake postdoctoral research at the Leucocyte Adhesion Laboratory, Imperial Cancer Research Fund, London. He then continued his medical career in medicine, specialising in Haematology and underwent specialist training in major UK cancer centres, such as the Royal Marsden Hospital, Sutton; the Christie Hospital in Manchester; University Hospital of Wales and Velindre Hospital, Cardiff.
Dr Ivanov completed specialist training in Haematology at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and was subsequently appointed as a Consultant Haematologist at Southend University Hospital in 2008. In 2011, he joined Surrey and Sussex NHS Trust, which remains his main NHS base and from where he leads the Haematology Multidisciplinary Team for haematological cancers.
My sub-speciality areas include lymphoma, myeloma, leukaemia and coagulation disorders. However, as a District General Hospital Haematologist, Dr Ivanov enjoys seeing patients with a wide variety of blood abnormalities.
He regularly teaches medical students, junior doctors and physicians’ assistants as well as conducting educational sessions for GPs in Surrey, West Sussex and London.
