Book an Appointment - Rachel Miller, MD

Endowed Chair, The Dr. David and Dorothy Merksamer Professor of Medicine (Allergy and Immunology)   Dr. Miller is board certified in Pulmonary Disease and Allergy and Immunology and a Fellow at the American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology. She joined the faculty at Mount Sinai after a long tenure at Columbia where she served as Director of the Allergy and Immunology Fellowship program, Director of Adult Allergy, and Director of the Division of Pediatric Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology.   At Mount Sinai, she is the Chief of the  Division of Clinical Immunology and Merksamer Professor in Immunology and continues her work as the Deputy Editor of Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

Her research concentrates on the mechanisms for the onset of asthma. One large research focus involves establishing and studying a birth cohort from Northern Manhattan (Columbia Center for Children’s Environmental Health), determining the importance of environmental allergens, traffic-related pollutants, and phthalate and bisphenol A exposure to the onset of allergies, asthma, and allergic immune responses. A major emphasis is on the role of prenatal and early postnatal exposure on later pediatric and adolescent asthma risk. Additional areas of research include identifying novel genetic by environment interactions important to the onset of asthma. She also has established several mouse models examining the importance of prenatal and postnatal environmental exposures on risk for asthma and other complex diseases. More recent initiatives have been to build a program in environmental epigenetics and asthma by studying DNA methylation in cell, mouse and human systems for which she is now internationally recognized.
