The Miller laboratory works on a number of problems related to the genetics of aging in mammals. 
Projects underway include:
  • Development of methods to slow aging in mice, by diets, drugs, or mutations

  • Cellular mechanisms of stress resistance and aging, in mice and in tissue culture

  • Comparative biogerontology using cells from species of birds, rodents, and primates

  • Gene mapping, biomarkers of aging, and correction of defects in T cell activation
