Miller Selected as Division Director of UAB Neuropathology

C. Ryan Miller, MD, PhD

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.
