Professor Christopher A Ludlam (Chairman)

Christopher Ludlam is Emeritus Professor of Haematology and Coagulation Medicine at the University of Edinburgh and former Director of the Haemophilia and Thrombosis Centre at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.

His initial research was in the field of platelet proteins and assessing their value in patients with platelet disorders, and in thromboembolic conditions. Over the past 25 years, however, his major activities have been towards promoting the development of safe therapeutic products for haemophilia. His studies have included setting up surveillance for potential pathogens and other adverse events, along with developing treatment options for those who become infected.

Professor Ludlam has been Chairman of the UK Haemophilia Centre Doctors’ Organisation and President of the British Society of Haemostasis and Thrombosis. He has served as Chairman or a member of national committees advising on the provision of haemophilia and coagulation services in the UK and Europe. He is a past President of the European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders.
