Jeffrey Miller, M.D.
Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry
Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene
Dr. Miller completed his residency in psychiatry as well as post-doctoral research training at Columbia University and The New York State Psychiatric Institute, where he is now Director of Brain Imaging in the Division of Molecular Imaging and Neuropathology, and Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry.
His clinical and research interests focus on mood disorders, with goals of increasing our understanding of the neurobiology of mood disorders, predicting treatment outcome with medication and psychotherapeutic interventions, and developing more effective treatments, using functional brain imaging approaches.
Dr. Miller's research has been funded by NARSAD, the CTSA, The Paul Janssen Fellowship in Translational Neuroscience Research, and The National Institutes of Health.
