Areas of Interest

The Miller laboratory works on a number of problems related to the genetics of aging in mammals. 

Projects underway include:

  • Development of methods to slow aging in mice, by diets, drugs, or mutations
  • Cellular mechanisms of stress resistance and aging, in mice and in tissue culture
  • Comparative biogerontology using cells from species of birds, rodents, and primates
  • Gene mapping, biomarkers of aging, and correction of defects in T cell activation
