I’m Dan Tyrrell, a post-doc in the division of Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of Michigan. I use animal models to examine how aging accelerates vascular diseases with a particular interest in how mitochondria can influence inflammation. I’m passionate about inclusion and representation, especially in STEM which is why I want to support outstanding Black scientists. Through #BlackInCardio and other outlets, I’m able to learn more about my own biases. Find me on Twitter, LinkedIn, or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
