Robert H. Miller, PhD is the Director of the Center for Translational Neuroscience, the Allen C. Holmes Professor of
Neurological Diseases, and a Professor of Neurosciences at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Miller also
holds appointments at the Cancer Center and Department of Neurosurgery, University Hospitals of Cleveland, and serves on
the staff for the Brain Tumor Institute and Lerner Institute's Department of Neuroscience at the Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Miller has a primary interest in CNS neural development with a focus on understanding the biology of neural diseases
including Multiple Sclerosis, Brain tumors and Cerebral Palsy. Dr. Miller's development research has focused on understanding
the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate glial cell determination in the developing vertebrate CNS.
Yan Yang, MD, PhD is an Instructor in the Department of Neurology at University Hospitals of Cleveland, Ohio. She
earned her M.D. from Kunming Medical School, China and her Ph.D. from University of Heidelberg, Germany. Dr. Yang has trained in
molecular neuropathology and cell biology. In the past few years, Dr. Yang's research interests have focused on understanding
cell cycle reentry leading to cell death in post-mitotic neurons and its related neurodegenerative diseases. Currently, in Dr. Miller's
lab, she is working on elucidating the cellular mechanism of myelin degeneration and repair in multiple sclerosis.
Sara VanDommelen is the Administrator for the Center for Translational Neuroscience. She works in the Office of Research and Technology Management at Case.
Becky Kahl is the Clinical Administrator for the Center at the University Hospitals Neurological Institute.
