Neal L Millar, PhD, FRCSEd(Tr&Ortho)

Mr Neal L Millar is a Senior Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon based in at the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation at the University Of Glasgow, Scotland. He is an Academic Orthopaedic Surgeon specialising in shoulder surgery and tendon injuries having completed shoulder fellowships under Professor George Murrell in Sydney and Dr Evan Flatow in New York. Additionally he completed his PhD in Immunology under Professor Iain McInnes, a global leader in musculoskeletal inflammation biology, in Glasgow where he now leads the tendon biology group. This group aims to investigate the molecular pathophysiology of tendinopathy; an overuse injury, characterised by tendon pain and weakness with a significant burden of disease. His past work has highlighted the role of inflammation and cytokines in tendon disease. He is currently focused on understanding the role of microRNA in the post transcriptional regulation of collagen synthesis and immediate tissue repair processes implicated in tendinopathy. This work aims to make an impact on the effective translation of basic immunology into orthopaedic clinical practice, and the reverse translation from the clinic into basic immunology. His work has been generously funded by the Wellcome Trust, Arthritis Research UK, The Scottish Funding Council, Chief Scientific Office Scotland and Scottish Enterprise grants.
