  • Research

    While at IU Health MRI, Dr. Miller's research interests included transplant vasculopathy, specifically the role of glycosaminoglycans and antithrombin in endothelial dysfunction and resultant microinfarctions due to fibrin deposition. His current research interests are focused on studying the mechanisms responsible for the delayed effects of acute radiation exposure (DEARE) associated with the cardiovascular system, especially the coronary arteries.  A second  area of interest is the use of cellular therapy to prevent or reverse the effects of peripheral arterial disease (PAD), including critical limb threatening ischemia. Dr. Miller has served as principal or co-principal investigator on over 18 research projects, most recently as the PI on an NIH R01 award and as co-PI on a U01, and has more than 35 peer-reviewed publications.
