Dr Rob Ellis is a Consultant Dermatologist practising within the County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust's Hospitals. After qualifying from the University of Leicester in 2003, he undertook his Higher Dermatology training in the North East. He attained a Doctorate of Medicine in the field of melanoma from Newcastle University in 2013, and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2017.
In his NHS work Dr Ellis undertakes regular clinics in general dermatology, but has a special interest in the diagnosis and surgical management of skin cancers – especially pigmented lesions, basal cell carcinomas and melanoma. He is heavily involved in laboratory and clinical melanoma research through Newcastle University, where he holds an honorary post as a Senior Clinical Lecturer. He has also recently set up a Newcastle University-based spin out company Amlo Biosciences Ltd, where he holds the position of Chief Medical Officer. The aim of the company is to revolutionise the ability to personalise treatment for melanoma.
Rob is very lucky, as dermatology is both his job and his hobby. But when he isn't looking after people's skin, he loves nothing more than tending his carrots and his raspberries with his wife and two young children.
