Professor Mills is a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, a British Heart Foundation Senior Clinical Research Fellow, and is Professor of Cardiology at the University of Edinburgh.
His research aims to improve our understanding of the mechanisms of myocardial injury in patients with coronary heart disease, and to identify new approaches to improve risk stratification, diagnosis and outcomes for these patients. He leads a number of multi-centred data-enabled randomised trials evaluating the impact of a high sensitive cardiac troponin testing in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (High-STEACS, HiSTORIC, TARGET-CTCA). He also leads a data-driven innovation in health and social care programme in Scotland, which is harnessing routinely collected data to better understand care and outcomes for people with acute and chronic health conditions. He is a Specialist Committee Member on the NICE Diagnostics Advisory Committee and is chair of the trial steering committee for the CODE-MI trial which aims to optimise the diagnosis of myocardial infarction in women.Back to speakers
