Sean James Miller, PhD
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Bio I am interested in the processes that aging and aging-associated diseases have on the molecular and cellular biology of neuroglia and their interactions with neurons. My long-term research goals are to further understand how central nervous system (CNS) cells change during aging, specifically at the protein and RNA level and how these changes influence the homeostasis of the brain. The end goal for this research direction is to eventually design potential therapeutics that can treat or cure patients with aging-associated diseases. My career goal is to become my own principal investigator that leads a research team consisting of both students and faculty. My academic and research experiences have prepared me with the knowledge, leadership, and technical skills required for such a career. For the past 10 years, I have been fully dedicated to an academic career in neuroscience, particularly in aging and neurodegeneration. I have multiple patents and publications, both first- and co-authored in high impact journals that illustrate my commitment and level of understanding of the neurosciences. I have had the opportunity to collaborate with the world’s experts and researched in some of the top laboratories in the United States. All of these properties will allow me to make significant impacts to the scientific community and become a leader of my own research team.
