Research

Dr. Miller's research concentrates on the mechanisms for the onset of asthma. One large research focus involves establishing and studying a birth cohort from Northern Manhattan (www.CCCEH.org), determining the importance of environmental allergens, traffic-related pollutants, and phthalate exposure to the onset of allergies, asthma, and Th2 immune responses. A major emphasis is on the role of prenatal and early postnatal exposure on later pediatric and adolescent asthma risk. Additional areas of research include identifying novel genetic by environment interactions important to the onset of asthma. She also has established several mouse models examining the importance of prenatal and postnatal environmental exposures on asthma risk and other complex disorders. More recent initiatives have been to build a program in environmental epigenetics and asthma by studying DNA methylation in cell, mouse and human systems. She is the Columbia site Principal Investigator of the nation-wide and NIH sponsored Children's Respiratory Research and Environment Workgroup (CREW) examining risk factors in the etiology of asthma and allergy.

Research Interests

  • Environmental epigenetics and asthma, allergy
  • Air pollution exposure and asthma
  • Chemical (phthalates, pesticides, bisphenol A) exposure and asthma
  • Air pollution exposure and breast cancer risk
