Research Interest

​The Miller research group is interested in understanding the mechanisms of enzyme action and how their dysfunction leads to human disease. We are also interested in resurrecting extinct enzymes to understand the evolutionary processes responsible for the biophysical features of extant catalysts. Members of the Miller group utilize a range of techniques from the fields of biochemistry, evolutionary biology, biophysics, organic chemistry and microbial genetics.
