US Department of State names UCR entomologist a Jefferson Science Fellow
Date:4/29/2010

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Thomas Miller, an internationally recognized expert at the University of California, Riverside on insect physiology, toxicology, and genetics, has been chosen by the U.S. Department of State to receive a 2010-2011 Jefferson Science Fellowship. Miller is one of only ten persons selected for the fellowships this year.

Successful applicants undergo a rigorous selection process, are highly accomplished in fields of science and engineering relevant to the State Department, and are ready to engage in foreign policy issues.

As a fellow, Miller, a professor of entomology, will spend a year in Washington, D.C., during which he will advise State Department officials on issues of science and technology. Specifically, he will assist the Department of State as it formulates and implements foreign policy on matters related to biotechnology and entomology. He also will discuss his expertise with non-specialists and the general public, providing advice and education, and may travel to U.S. embassies as necessary.

"I am delighted and honored to be awarded a Jefferson Science Fellowship," Miller said. "Tenure as a Jefferson Science Fellow will allow me to pursue the application of biotechnology to pest and disease problems around the world. Several of the projects I am working on are already of interest to the State Department."

Miller, who came to UC Riverside in 1969, began his research studying the physiology of the insect circulatory system. He is credited with discovering the function of cardiac neurons in the cockroach heart. As a graduate student (at UCR), he discovered the myogenicity of insect heartbeat. He pioneered the use of neurophysiology to study insecticide mode of action in houseflies. He also pioneered
