David Michael Miller MD, PhD, FAAD is a Board-Certified Dermatologist and Medical Oncologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and investigator in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center. The Miller Lab’s long-term goal is to identify and develop novel therapeutics for advanced skin cancer and to understand the mechanism of response and resistance to those therapies.

Dr. Miller is one of the very few clinicians in the country who is board certified in Internal Medicine, Dermatology and Medical Oncology. He currently practices both Dermatology and Medical Oncology in the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, where he co-directs multidiscliplinary clinics in advanced skin cancer, including the Merkel Cell Carcinoma Treatment Program.

The Miller Lab’s research portfolio consists of clinical and translational projects in Merkel Cell carcinoma, cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. Dr. Miller has received support for his research from the NIH in the form of a loan repayment award, a Research Grant from the American Skin Association, the Paul Carbone, MD fellowship award from ECOG-ACRIN, and the Mentoring Award in Oncology, Advanced Analytics and Regulatory Science from Project Data Sphere.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
