Research Interests

Dr. Miller is interested in protein structure and function and biochemical pathways at a cellular level. Her research includes use of genetic interactions in Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker’s yeast) as a way to evaluate functional relationships between proteins.

About Dr. Aimee L. Miller

Dr. Miller joined the Chemistry Department in August of 2003. She earned her Ph.D. at the University of Virginia doing biophysical analysis of metal binding to a protein involved in cell signaling. She then learned yeast genetic techniques doing post-doctoral studies of nuclear transport. At Millersville, she teaches introductory chemistry as well as upper-level courses in biochemistry.
