Susan Miller

Dr. Susan Miller is a professor in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco. Her research focus and expertise is in the areas of chemical biology and medicinal chemistry. Her team uses a variety of biochemical and biophysical tools to investigate protein structure/function questions spanning the range of elucidating novel aspects of catalysis in individual enzymes to understanding the interactions of proteins within a pathway and how mutations influence flux through the pathway. Their current work is focused on understanding how key enzymes and transport proteins of bacterial mercury detoxification pathways work individually, with each other, and with other host cell proteins to rapidly remove the toxic threat of organomercurials (such as Methyl-Hg) and mercuric ions from their environment.
