Postdoctoral research fellow
Jonathan Millar is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh and an Honorary Consultant in Intensive Care Medicine at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Glasgow.
His research interests include the functional genomics of ARDS, computational biology applied to the lung, and lung model systems (precision cut lung slices, ex-vivo lung perfusion, and complex large animal models).
He completed his PhD with Prof John Fraser and Prof Danny McAuley, studying the role of mesenchymal stem cells and ECMO in ARDS.
Since moving to Edinburgh in 2020, he has worked with Prof Kenneth Baillie at the Roslin Institute and the Baillie Gifford Pandemic Science Hub.
He has contributed to the Genetics of Mortality in Critical Care (GenOMICC) study and is working to develop in-silico and in-vitro platforms to better understand the functional genomics underpinning acute severe respiratory failure.
