I'm a pediatric immunologist and rheumatologist dedicated to improving our understanding of immune regulation to advance care for patients with immune system disorders.  My clinical practice is focused on diagnosing and managing patients with complex or unknown immune system disorders, and my research area is focused on studying genes that regulate the immune system.  My current research project is focused on elucidating the function of a novel gene called Mosaic that causes immune dysregulation.

Corey Miller, PhD, MD

Asst Adjunct Professor
Diabetes Center

The Miller Lab is working to develop our understanding of stromal-immune crosstalk, T cell development, and T cell mediated immunity. We use methods in experimental and systems immunology to dissect how the thymus supports thymoctye development while maintaining central immune tolerance.
