Dr. Miller has a special interest in brain and behavior relationships and has focused his work in the area of dementia. He is actively involved in patient care at the UCSF clinics and hospital and teaches extensively in the medical school. Dr. Miller is the principal investigator of the NIH-sponsored Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) and directs an NIH-funded program project on frontotemporal dementia (FTD) called Frontotemporal Dementia: Genes, Imaging and Emotions.

Dr. Dixie Lee Boney Soo is a retired neurologist who dedicated her professional life to caring for people with neurologic disorders.  She was a pioneer for women in medicine and neurology and led a life of dignity focused on her family, community service, philanthropy, and the lifelong study of medicine, botany and opera.  Unfortunately, Dr. Soo is herself now afflicted by a difficult neurologic disease.  Her family honored her by establishing the Dixie Lee Boney Soo, MD Distinguished Professorship in Neurological Medicine.  This professorship supports lectures like Dr. Miller’s and research into the pathogenesis and treatment of nervous system disorders.
