Kim Whittington, secretary


Dr Aristeidis Chaidos has been a consultant haematologist and honorary senior lecturer at the Hammersmith Hospital and Imperial College London since 2012, with clinical and research interest in multiple myeloma, lymphomas and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. He graduated from the University of Ioannina Medical School, Greece in 1995. He completed his training in haematology and PhD research on multiple myeloma at the same institution in 2005. He was then trained in haematopoietic stem cell transplantation at the Hammersmith Hospital (2005–2007) and later he joined Professor Karadimitris’ laboratory for post-doctoral research on multiple myeloma.
