About Dr. Donald Miller
Dr. Donald Miller is a Professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Manitoba. He received his B.Sc. in Chemistry from Bethel College (1985), Newton, Kansas, and his Ph.D. in Pharmacology and Toxicology from the University of Kansas (1991). He was a Marion Merrell Dow Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Dr. Ronald Borchardt’s laboratory at the University of Kansas where he studied biological approaches for enhancing drug delivery and drug absorption (1991-1993). Dr. Miller is an internationally recognized expert in drug transporters and blood-brain barrier function, having served on both NIH and CIHR grant and fellowship review panels, as well as reviewer and site visit examiner for Austrian and European Union based program grant initiatives. Dr. Miller’s research program includes examination of blood-brain barrier changes during brain tumor development and identification of methods for increasing the delivery of chemotherapeutic agents to brain tumor; identification and characterization of drug efflux transport proteins in the blood-brain barrier and the molecular mechanisms influencing activity and expression; and the design and development of nanoparticle drug delivery platforms for CNS applications.
