Andrew H. Miller, M.D., the William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, studies brain-immune interactions as they relate to stress and depression. His work focuses on the mechanisms by which cytokines cause depression in humans and non-human primates using chronic administration of the innate immune cytokine, interferon-alpha, as a model of chronic immune stimulation. Dr. Miller has also studied the impact of cytokines on neuroendocrine regulation as well as sleep. Dr. Miller and his group have conducted clinical trials examining the efficacy of cytokine antagonists in patients with treatment resistant depression. In addition to his research work, Dr. Miller is the director of Psychiatric Oncology and co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program at Emory’s Winship Cancer Institute.
