    Biography

    Dr Vasilis Kouranos completed his training in respiratory medicine in 2013 at the General Hospital of Thoracic Diseases, the largest university hospital in Athens. 

    He completed his masters degree in Thoracic Oncology in 2011 after a publication about antibiotic prophylaxis of chemotherapy-induced neutropenic lung cancer patients.

    His PhD at the University of Athens focused on screening CMR patients with biopsy-proven sarcoidosis. He was awarded a research scholarship grant for the study and his PhD was awarded in 2017 after his work was published in a high-impact journal which influences current practice in the field.

    After his PhD, he joined the Royal Brompton hospital as a clinical research fellow to Professor Athol Wells and in 2016 he was offered the role of senior clinical fellow and in parallel, acting consultant in the interstitial lung disease department.

    I found Dr Kouranos a very open and sincere person. I can say he puts my health first. I am able to talk all my doubts with him and he is always listening and came back to me with a reasonable answer. He always hears what I want and need, and then goes ahead with a plan, with I agreed with. I think he never wants to go forward with unnecessary procedures and medication if there is no need. Very happy to have him as a Doctor.
