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
