Bruce L. Miller, MD

Dr. Miller holds the A.W. and Mary Margaret Clausen Distinguished Professorship in Neurology at UC San Francisco where he directs the Memory and Aging Center. He is a behavioral neurologist whose work in neurodegenerative conditions emphasizes brain-behavior relationships and the genetic and molecular underpinnings of disease. He is the principal investigator of the NIH-sponsored Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and program project on frontotemporal dementia. Additionally, he helps lead the Tau Consortium, Consortium for Frontotemporal Research and Global Brain Health Institute. He was awarded the Potamkin Award from the American Academy of Neurology and elected to the National Academy of Medicine.

 As one of his nominators stated: “Despite Dr. Miller’s remarkable scientific accomplishments, I suspect he will be most remembered for having trained a new generation of clinician-scientists whose mission is to help find treatments and cures for neurodegenerative disease.”
