Jeffrey H. Miller Lab

The Miller lab is part of the Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics within the UCLA Geffen School of Medicine, and also part of the Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA.

DNA Repair and Mutagenesis

Our laboratory studies mechanisms of DNA repair and mutagenesis, and mutation avoidance pathways.  We use microorganisms to discover repair and mutation avoidance pathways, and then attempt to find counterparts in higher cells, including humans.  The long term goals include understanding human disease and cancer that arises from disruption of DNA repair or activation of mutational pathways.
