Evanna Mills completed her PhD in immunology at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland under the supervision of Prof. Luke O'Neill. She moved to Boston in 2017 to pursue a post-doc with Ed Chouchani in the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) studying adipose tissue physiology. Dr. Mills recently started her independent research group in DFCI/Harvard Medical School. The Mills lab studies the interplay between metabolite signaling and innate immune cell function in models of sterile and classical inflammatory disease.

  2. BAT does more than generate heat
  3. Sex matters for metabolic disease
