Clinical Chemistry Fellow, Dept of Pathology, University of LouisvilleBiography
able Dr. Millner received her PhD in the field of pharmacology and toxicology from the University of Louisville where she studied gene-environmental interactions associated with breast cancer. Following completion of her PhD, she completed a 2 year NIH T32 fellowship in the Department of Pathology where she continued her research on breast cancer with a focus on circulating tumor cells. Currently, Dr. Millner is focusing on translating her initial circulating tumor cell research into a clinically useful assay as a Clinical Chemistry Fellow at the University of Louisville Hospital. She plans to integrate her clinical training and research background to develop diagnostics useful for early stage cancers. Dr. Millner has given talks this year at the American Association of Clinical Chemists and the Association for Clinical Scientists and has received numerous awards this year including the Young Scientist Award in Innovation of Science (ACS), Young Investigator Award in Molecular Pathology (AACC), Best Poster Award in Clinical Diagnostics and Immunology (AACC), and a travel award (AACC).
