Dr. Antoniades gained a First class Degree in Immunology and Honours in Medicine from UCL & Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine. After completing his doctoral thesis on monocyte dysfunction in acute liver failure at the Institute of Liver Sciences, he was appointed as an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Hepatology and presently holds the MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship.
His areas of clinical expertise include management of critically ill patients with both acute and chronic liver failure. He has a research interest in the acute liver injury and the immunological processes that govern this condition and has a number of publications in biomarker and mechanistic aspects of acute liver failure. He currently runs his laboratory groups between both Imperial and Kings College London sites examining the role of monocytes in both human and experimental models of liver injury.
