    Andrea Millen

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Psychiatry

    Bio Andrea Millen, Psy.D. is a post-doctoral fellow in the OCD and Related Disorders program within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. She received her doctorate in clinical psychology from Pacific University School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Millen has extensive experience using Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT) with adults, adolescents, and children to treat a variety of anxiety and mood disorders. She is passionate about providing effective treatments for Hoarding Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and improving mental health literacy and resources in the community.

    She completed her APA accredited pre-doctoral internship at the Denver VA Medical Center where she specialized in treating veterans presenting with a variety of internalizing and externalizing issues including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, psychosis, suicidality, co-occurring medical conditions, and co-occurring substance use disorders. Her training focused on Health Psychology and Primary Care – Mental Health Integration (PC-MHI). In a variety of interdisciplinary medical settings, she worked with palliative care, chronic pain, and inpatient teams. Additionally, she is trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD. Her doctoral dissertation examined medical providers and medical student’s knowledge and attitudes towards Hoarding Disorder. She brings experience leading Buried In Treasures (BIT), an evidence-based group treatment for those who struggle with hoarding, and providing individual treatment for Hoarding Disorder. Dr. Millen is a member of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and the American Psychological Association.

    Bio My research focus involves the application of modern genomics to unravel complex human diseases and promote health. By integrating large-scale human genetic association data with multi-omic profiling and functional models, my work seeks to better understand causal disease mechanisms. Recent efforts involve the discovery of regulatory variants associated with coronary artery disease (CAD) linked to changes in chromatin structure and gene expression in primary vascular cells and tissues. This work encompasses genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics and the development and application of robust and integrative computational pipelines. We are currently mapping differential allele-specific chromatin states and gene expression in large cohorts using various statistical frameworks. Ultimately these approaches will shed light on the functions and interactions of common regulatory variants, as well as hierarchical patterns of transcription factor binding, chromatin accessibility, and nucleosome positions in different environments. We are applying site-specific genomic targeting in inducible pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and animal models to further close the gap between associations and disease-relevant phenotypes. I currently maintain a unique biobank of vascular tissues from explanted donor hearts. I am also involved with developing specialized curricula in genomic medicine for both medical students and practicing physicians.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Cardiac and heart valve disease with experimental laboratory large animal projects focused on the investigation of left ventricular and cardiac mechanics, bioenergetics, and LV and mitral valve physiology and pathophysiology. Current thrust is aimed at understanding the mitral valve and subvalvular mitral apparatus and transmural LV wall strains, thickening, and myolaminar fiber-sheet mechanics.

    Clinical research interests include thoracic aortic diseases (aortic dissection, aneurysm) and cardiac valvular disease, including surgical treatment, endovascular thoracic aortic stent-graft repair, mitral valve repair, and valve-sparing aortic root replacement.
