Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Miller’s research effort evaluates glutamate metabolism in sensory systems during inflammatory, injury, and pain conditions and, in particular, three areas: 1. Primary sensory neurons under painful, inflammatory and neuropathic conditions. 2. Spinal processing of inflammatory nociceptive information from visceral and somatic structures. 3. Response of neurons to injury and CNS inflammation. He has two US patents (# 7,288,246; #7,504,231) and his team has expertise in enzyme and amino acid analysis (HPLC), histochemistry, quantitative immunohistochemistry, immunoblotting, ELISA, electron microscopy, qPCR, and behavioral testing.
