Timothy Miller, MD, PhD
Dr. Timothy Miller performed his graduate studies with Dr. Eugene Johnson from 1993-1997 and completed his M.D./Ph.D. at Washington University School of Medicine in 1998. He then trained as a neurology resident and neuromuscular fellow at the University of California-San Francisco from 1998-2003. Afterwards, Dr. Miller moved to the University of California-San Diego where he spent four years as part of the Mentored Scientist Clinical Training Program doing post-doctoral work on disease models of ALS. Dr. Miller's research focuses on methods to turn off harmful genes in the brain and spinal cord as a way to bring novel treatments to neurodegenerative diseases, in particular ALS. His other research interests include understanding how dysfunction of mitochondria, the power generators for cells, may be causing ALS. Dr. Miller has become a national leader in translational neuroscience and new therapeutic approaches for ALS.
As a board certified neurologist with a subspecialty in neurophysiology, Dr. Miller sees patients and participates in clinical trials in the Washington University Neuromuscular Clinic. He is currently an assitant professor of neurology at Washington University in St. Louis and a faculty member of the Hope Center for NeurologicalDisorders. He is the first director of the Christopher Wells Hobler Laboratory for ALS Research.
