About Dr. Miller
Dr. Miller has been a physician in academic and private practice for over 30 years. During that period, there have been spectacular advances in biology, medicine, genetics, and microbiology. A combination of observations about patterns of disease from medicine with current scientific discoveries in cellular biology, virology, and microbiome have propelled provocative insights into our co-evolutionary journey.
His research began by uncovering previously unappreciated unifying impulses that underscore biology at every sale. Every living creature is intelligent in its own way and to its own limits, from single cells to whales. The productive use of information by any living thing depends on that ‘knowing’ assessment of information. It is only individual cellular intelligence that permits the critical cell-cell communications that permit us to seamlessly function as humans with our trillions of cells. Our cells have learned an imperative living principle: each individual cell can sustain itself better within a reciprocating community of cells. It is these connections, as they ripple across biology, that leads to all of the complex living wonders on our planet.
Four books and dozens of peer-reviewed academic publications by Dr. Miller and multiple colleagues form a major body of work concentrating on the role of cognition and information in biology. This perspective forms the basis of Cognition-Based Evolution as a peer-accepted alternative evolutionary narrative. This novel framework emphasizes the roles of cellular intelligence, cell-cell communication, and cellular engineering as the cornerstone processes in evolution.
Dr. Miller is a graduate of Northwestern University in Biology, Northwestern Medical School, and is a member of the medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. Besides his medical work, he has been painting in oils since his teens. He now paints figurative works and portraits in his studio in Phoenix. Arizona and his figurative work is featured at Hilliard Gallery in Kansas City.
Dr. Miller is currently serving as a scientific advisor and science writer for Seed.com, a pioneering entrepreneurial ecosystem dedicated to research and development in the microbiome and its relationship to our health.
