Dr Philip McMillan

Physician, Lead COVID-19 autoimmune researcher, Dementia Authority
Doncaster and Bassetlaw NHS Trust

Physician and researcher with an innovative approach to COVID-19 and international keynote speaker. First to outline a theory of autoimmunity in COVID-19 in April 2020. Sharing valuable research on science and health through LinkedIn Live interviews and regular posts.

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have applied my research technique, which has been successful in dementia, to help understand COVID-19. I have observed that the primary pathology of the disease is typically several steps away from visible symptoms. In the case of COVID-19, I have proposed that severe disease is a viral-mediated autoimmune response. In April 2020, I first outlined the theory of autoimmunity in COVID-19 based on the interaction between the viral spike protein and serum ACE-2, which was subsequently published in a paper co-authored by Prof Bruce Uhal, the top pulmonary ACE-2 researcher worldwide. Research at Johns Hopkins University has since (October 2020) confirmed autoantibodies to ACE-2 in the serum of severely affected patients, supporting the theory of autoimmunity in COVID-19. I am working towards carrying this research forward with the support of a team of international experts.

What our clients say about us

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!


In view of the recent NHS Oncology Conference organised by CONVENZIS which was sponsored by Pascoe Healthcare Ltd, CONVENZIS exhibited professionalism through credible organisation, invitation of delegates/respectable Speakers and general conduct of the entire conference. This has also shown that CONVENZIS is a great partner in business which is fundamental to ROI of partnering Companies even in the wake of the pandemic.

“We’ve worked with the Convenzis team for several years and their events are a regular occurrence for us. Not only is the content always extremely topical, but the speakers are always excellent and the support from the team ahead of and during the events is exceptional. The team are incredibly receptive to feedback and always goes above and beyond – a real pleasure to work with!”


“It has been a pleasure to work with Matt and Dan for the past few events. Everything has always run smoothly and we’ve always managed to gather a large number of interested parties due to the events they have hosted.

They are also very helpful and timely in their responses, which has made working with them very easy “
