The University of Alabama at Birmingham Division of Neuropathology has named C. Ryan Miller, MD, PhD, as division director.
Miller was most recently a professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. He also served as faculty director of the UNC Translational Pathology Laboratory in conjunction with the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Miller's return is a homecoming of sorts. In 1999, prior to medical school, he completed a PhD in the department's Cellular and Molecular Pathology Graduate Program. He earned his medical degree from the UAB School of Medicine in 2002 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the UAB Brain Treatment and Research Program. Miller then moved to Washington University School of Medicine, where he completed a residency in anatomic pathology in 2004 and a fellowship in neuropathology in 2006.
Miller also serves on the neuropathology and neuro-oncology committees of the National Cancer Institute's Alliance for Clinical Trials in Oncology.
Miller replaces interim division director Vishnu Reddy, MD, professor in the Division of Laboratory Medicine.
