Dr Slavisa Ninkovic

Molecular & Laboratory Haematopathologist
MBBS(Hons) FRACP FRCPA BSci(Hons) BBioMedSci

Dr Ninkovic graduated from the University of Melbourne in 2008, completing advanced training in clinical and laboratory haematology through St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. After an 18 month clinical fellowship at the University College Hospital in London, he returned to St. Vincent’s where he is currently practicing as a clinical and laboratory haematologist and a molecular haematopathologist at the Victorian Cancer Cytogenetics Service.

Dr Ninkovic is currently enrolled in a PhD centred on a clinical study assessing a response-adapted approach to treatment of transplant ineligible multiple myeloma patients. Translational research focusing on the immune tumour microenvironment and genomic aberrations in myeloma are integral components of his research activity. He is most excited by advancing developments in the field of diagnostic haematopathology and how they continually bring us a step closer to delivering personalised treatments for patients with haematological malignancies.
