Biography

Dr. Edward J. Miller, MD, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Radiology in the Section of Cardiovascular Medicine. Dr. Miller directs the clinical nuclear cardiology laboratory at Yale-New Haven Hospital as well as the Cardiology Fellowship Program for the Yale University School of Medicine. His clinical and research interests center on the evaluation and treatment of infiltrative cardiomyopathies, particularly cardiac sarcoidosis and amyloidosis, and are focused on the role of nuclear cardiac imaging in diagnosing and defining treatment response in these disorders. In addition, Dr. Miller pursues translational research focused on metabolic cardiomyopathies, particularly the role of mitochondrial metabolism in obesity-related metabolic heart disease.

Dr. Miller received his undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, majoring in Preprofessional Studies with a concentration in Science, Technology and Values. He completed medical school at the Loyola-Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago where he was awarded an American Heart Association Student Research Fellowship. Dr. Miller completed his internal medicine residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, as well as research and clinical cardiology fellowships at Yale. He also completed a PhD in Investigative Medicine from the Yale School of Medicine, working in the laboratory of Dr. Lawrence Young focused on "The Cardioprotective Effects of AMP-Activated Protein Kinase." Dr. Miller is a recipient of an NIH/NLHBI K08 award, mentored by Dr. Wilson Colucci at Boston University School of Medicine on "The Role and Regulation of the LKB1-AMPK Axis in Diabetic Cardiomyopathy."

Dr. Miller was recruited back to Yale in 2015 to direct the nuclear cardiology lab and the cardiology fellowship program.
