Dr. Timothy Miller is the first director of the Christopher Wells Hobler Laboratory for ALS Research, where he investigates methods to turn off harmful genes in the brain and spinal cord. These novel therapeutic strategies will be applied to patients with neurodegenerative diseases, in particular ALS and Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Miller’s current research examines techniques to determine how quickly these novel therapies will affect patients. Successful completion of these studies will yield better, faster ways to assess the effectiveness of future therapies in humans.
