Research

Background: 
Dr Nicholas Mills was born in Glasgow and raised in Scotland and North America. He studied Medicine and Pharmacology at the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 2000. He undertook his clinical training at the Western General Hospital and Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh before joining the Centre for Cardiovascular Science in 2003. Dr Mills is currently a Reader in Cardiology and British Heart Foundation Intermediate Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh and Consultant Cardiologist at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
Research interests: 
To understand mechanisms of vascular and myocardial injury in patients with coronary heart disease, and develop novel therapeutic approaches to promote vascular repair and improve clinical outcomes.  Dr Mills is a member of the Cardiovascular Outcomes Research Edinburgh (CORE) group, which brings together researchers from the Centres for Cardiovascular Science and Population Health Sciences with support from the Edinburgh Clinical Trials Unit. CORE aims to improve clinical outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease by harnessing the potential of national electronic health records to systematically evaluate the impact of changes in practice on clinical outcomes.
Responsibilities: 
Dr Mills teaches on the MBChB course and is responsible for the supervision of clinical and non-clinical PhD students.
