“I’m so inspired by my patients and their parents that I meet during the BMT journey.
These families – and also my incredibly talented colleagues - motivate me to test new ideas and discover better, safer treatments.”
Dr. Miller is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Blood and Marrow Transplantation. He specializes in caring for patients with Adrenoleukodystrophy, Hurler syndrome and other inherited metabolic disorders.
Medical School: Louisiana State University, New Orleans
Residency: Oregon Health and Sciences University, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, Portland, OR (Pediatrics)
Fellowship: Emory University, Atlanta (Pediatric Hematology and Oncology); University of Minnesota (Pediatric Blood and Marrow Transplantation)
Dr. Miller is focused on looking at the next generation of transplant protocols, and finding the best balance of therapies that deliver a successful patient outcome, while limiting toxicity. As part of the care team for patients with inherited metabolic disorders, Dr. Miller is investigating strategies to increase the rate of donor engraftment for this group of patients. His hope is that this work will lead to treatment protocols for other transplant patient groups.
