Dr Milica Mavra
MD, MSc, PhD
My postgraduate training was in Serbia and Sweden, obtaining an MSc and PhD in multiple sclerosis. I was a Clinical and Research Fellow for five years at the National Hospital for Neurology in London. I work as an Associate Professor of Neurology at the School of Medicine in Belgrade, and was Head of Neurology and Associate Professor of Neurology at the Kuwait Faculty of Medicine for five years. Since 1999, I have been working in the UK as a Consultant Neurologist, and for ten years held a full time post at Southend University Hospital until 2012.
I was awarded two Excellence Awards and a special Staff Achievement Award for developing the Rapid Access Epilepsy Clinic at Southend University Hospital. I carried out extensive research and took part in multicentre UK studies on epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis on cannabis use.
I have 77 publications and 7 published audits. I am also a recognised medico-legal expert.

I am married with two children. My husband has a PhD in international marketing, working as an independent businessman. My son Boris has a PhD in mathematics from Oxford and was three times Oxford Blue (rowing) and has swum the Channel six times. My daughter Lidija has a PhD in social studies and aside from her work as a researcher and editor, organises new ways to employ homeless people in London.
I like to spend my time reading, walking, swimming and snorkelling, and enjoy cooking.
