The Miller Lab is located in the Center for Public Health Genomics at the University of Virginia. Our lab focuses on genetic and environmental risk factors for coronary artery disease and other complex cardiovascular diseases using a combination of computational systems genomics, single-cell -omics, and genetic/drug perturbations in vitro. We integrate state-of-the-art computational and functional genomic analyses with vascular physiology to study causal regulatory networks driving vascular disease processes. We have assembled a biobank of vascular tissue samples from a diverse cohort of normal and diseased patients with a spectrum of phenotypes to facilitate our discovery approaches. Our primary goals are to identify novel markers to better classify patients with cardiovascular disease as well as inform tailored treatments that target dysregulated pathways in the vessel wall.
