Professor Kenneth R. Miller
Miller, Ph.D., FAAAS is Professor of Biology,
Royce Family Professor for Teaching Excellence, Brown
Ken’s research work on cell membrane structure and function has produced more than 50 scientific papers and reviews in leading journals, including CELL, Nature, and Scientific American. He is coauthor of four different high school and college biology textbooks which are used by millions of students nationwide.
One of his principal interests is the public understanding of evolution. He has written a number of articles defending the scientific integrity of evolution, answering challenges such as “intelligent design”, and has debated a number of anti-evolutionists.
His books include Finding Darwin’s God: A Scientist’s Search for Common Ground Between God and Evolution, Only a Theory: Evolution and the Battle for America’s Soul, and Prentice-Hall Biology.
Ken’s papers include Oligomeric Rings of the Sec61p Complex Induced by Ligands Required for Protein Translocation, Three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic membrane, The bacterial SecY/E translocation complex forms channel-like structures similar to those of the eukaryotic sec61p complex, Analysis of the thylakoid outer surface. Coupling factor is limited to unstacked membrane regions, and The light-harvesting chlorpohyll-protein complex of photosystem II. Its location in the photosynthetic membrane.
Ken earned his B.Sc. in Biology at Brown University in 1970 and his Ph.D. in Biology at the University of Colorado in 1974. In 2006 he was awarded Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
