Inflammation and Depression: Mechanisms, Mediators and Therapeutic Implications

Andrew Miller, MD is William P. Timmie Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. He is also the Vice Chair for Research in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and Director of the Emory Behavioral Immunology Program. Finally, Dr. Miller is the co-leader of the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Program Research at the Winship Cancer Institute. Dr. Miller is an internationally recognized leader in the area of brain-immune interactions as they relate to depression in medically healthy as well as medically ill patients including patients with cancer. His work has demonstrated that during immune activation, inflammatory cytokines can access the brain and interact with the metabolism of dopamine and glutamate, while altering neurocircuits in the brain relevant to motivation and reward as well as anxiety and alarm. Dr. Miller has also studied the impact of cytokines on neuroendocrine regulation and sleep including the study of the specific signal transduction pathways involved. Additionally, Dr. Miller and his group conducted the first clinical trial examining the efficacy of a cytokine antagonist for the treatment of depression. He has produced over 200 scholarly publications and edited a book entitled Depressive Disorders and Immunity. Dr. Miller’s research awards include the Curt Richter Award from the International Society of Psychoneuroendocrinology and the Norman Cousins Award from the Psychoneuroimmunology Research Society. Aside from his research endeavors, Dr. Miller has won numerous teaching and mentoring awards and is a Board Certified Psychiatrist and past examiner for the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
