Barbara Miller, MD, received her undergraduate degree from Douglass College of Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J., and her medical degree from Penn State College of Medicine. She completed her pediatric residency at Duke University Medical Center in Durhan, N.C., and her fellowship in pediatric hematology/oncology at Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Miller joined the faculty at Harvard Medical School and then the faculty at Penn State College of Medicine, where she is currently professor of pediatrics and biochemistry and molecular biology. Her clinical focus includes management of difficult-to-diagnose pediatric hematology/oncology patients.

Dr. Miller is chief of the Division of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. She is also director of the Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Center and associate director of pediatric oncology for Penn State Cancer Institute. Dr. Miller holds the Christopher Millard Endowed Chair in Pediatric Oncology Research and has been National Institutes of Health-funded for more than 30 years for her work on the role of calcium signaling and mitochondrial function in cancer. Dr. Miller has been elected to the American Society for Clinical Investigation, the American Pediatric Society and Best Doctors in America and is an Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine Fellow.
