Dr. Charles Miller uses biochemical, cellular, and animal model systems to investigate the mechanistic actions of synthetic and naturally occurring chemicals. He is investigating the major toxic compounds in crude oil as they age in the environment. He also is investigating mechanisms of chemical entry into cells. He teaches basic and advanced toxicology courses. His undergraduate training was in the life sciences at the University of Alabama in Birmingham (UAB). He was a research associate UAB and studied immunology of natural killer cells. He moved to Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and studied cellular heterogeneity within tumors. He then went to New York University for doctoral training and studied mechanisms of chromium-induced carcinogenesis. Dr. Miller discovered several new origins of chromosomal replication on S. cerevisiae chromosome III and characterized the multiple repetitive replication origins in ribosomal DNA during his postdoctoral training at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
