Jeffrey H. Miller is a professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics within the UCLA Geffen School of Medicine, and also part of the Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA. His research focuses on mechanisms of DNA repair and mutagenesis, and mutation avoidance pathways. His research group uses microorganisms to discover repair and mutation avoidance pathways, and then attempt to find counterparts in higher cells, including humans. The long term goals include understanding human disease and cancer that arises from disruption of DNA repair or activation of mutational pathways.
