Area of Interest

The Miller lab is interested in understanding how tumors evade the immune response and how we can better activate the immune system to fight cancer. We have a particular focus on a type of immune cell, myeloid cells, that can regulate many aspects of the immune response and are not targeted by current immunotherapies. Using single-cell and functional genomics approaches, we hope to identify novel myeloid-directed therapies that allow us to overcome resistance and successfully treat more patients.
