Dr Jovan P. Antović MD, PhD is an associate professor and senior lecturer in coagulation & clinical chemistry and responsible for clinical chemistry part on the course Human Disease - 2 of MD programme at Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm Sweden. On the clinical part he is a senior consultant, medical head of coagulation diagnostics at Clinical Chemistry, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. He is also a visiting professor in hematology at Faculty of Medicine Nis and Faculty of Medicine Kragujevac in Serbia. He is a member of EQUALIS (Swedish external quality assessment for clinical laboratory investigations) expert group in coagulation.
He received his MD degree in 1993 and specialist degree in Internal Medicine - Hematology in 1998 at Faculty of Medicine, University of Nis, Serbia working at Department of Hematology, Clinical Centre Nis. After short stay in Centre for Thrombosis and Hemostasis at University of Chapel Hill, NC, USA he has worked at Karolinska University Hospital and Institutet since 2000, excepting 20 months period (July 2004-March 2006) when he worked as International Medical Advisor in Novo Nordisk. At Karolinska he also received specialist degree in Clinical Chemistry in 2011.
He participates in several national and international projects in the field of both thrombosis and bleeding and leads a project about global hemostatic assays in hemophilia. Apart that, his area of interests are microparticles and cross-talk between coagulation and inflammation as well as laboratory diagnosis of heparin induced thrombocytopenia and markers of thrombin generation. Recently he has also been focused on laboratory methods for follow up of direct oral anticoagulants.
He was a main tutor to one and co-tutor for three graduated PhD students and is currently a tutor to two PhD students and tutor to three post-doc engaged on projects about global hemostatic assays both in hemophilia and thrombophilia and thrombosis.
He is author or co-author in more than 50 articles published in peer-review journals and co-editor of guide textbook Essential guide to coagulation (two editions) and a member of Editorial Board of J Thromb Haemost.
