Dr Carolyn Millar qualified in medicine in 1995 with distinction in all subjects. Following general medical training in London teaching hospitals (FRCP) she trained in haematology (FRCPath) at Hammersmith, Great Ormond Street and Royal Free hospitals, latterly subspecialising in haemostasis and thrombosis. Her doctoral thesis investigating the role of glycans in von Willebrand factor clearance and their relation to von Willebrand disease was under the supervision of Professor Ted Tuddenham at University College London and Professor Jan van Mourik in Amsterdam (awarded 2008). In 2008 she was awarded a Higher Education Funding Council for England Senior Lectureship to start her position at Imperial College London and also took up the position of consultant haematologist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. Dr Millar is the lead clinician for haemophilia at Hammersmith Hospital, leads the obstetric haematology service at Queen Charlotte’s and Chelsea Hospital and has developed haemostasis and thrombosis services across Trust sites. She holds a variety of academic leadership positions at Imperial College London, is involved in a number of international clinical trials and her work is widely published and cited.
