Stephen Miller, Ph.D.

Dr. Stephen Miller is the Judy Gugenheim Research Professor of Microbiology-Immunology and Director of the Interdepartmental Immunobiology Center at Northwestern University Medical School. Dr. Miller is internationally recognized for his research on pathogenesis and regulation of immune-mediated diseases using antigen-specific tolerance and monocyte targeting strategies. His work has significantly enhanced the understanding of immune inflammatory processes underlying chronic disease employing animal models of multiple sclerosis (MS) and Type 1 diabetes. Dr. Miller is best known for studying the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying treatment of established T cell-mediated immune diseases – including Tregs, short-term co-stimulatory molecule blockade strategies and induction of immune tolerance.

Dr. Miller has published more than 400 research papers and is a consultant to several biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies, having assisted in the development of three new chemical entities from proof-of-concept through to Phase 3 clinical trials. He has served or currently serves on grant review panels for the National Institute of Health, the National MS Society, the Immune Tolerance Network and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and on the editorial boards of multiple journals.
