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

the mode of action of insecticides and the synaptic transmission in insects.

He also worked on applied aspects of pest management. He briefly studied insecticide resistance in and the physiology of cotton pests such as the pink bollworm, and worked on the physiology and toxicology of cotton pests for the California Cotton Pest Control Board. He revolutionized the rapid measurement of resistance to insecticides, diapause in pink bollworm and response to pheromones in cotton fields in Southern California. His laboratory genetically altered endosymbiotic bacteria of the walnut husk fly for use in perfecting bait treatments for fly management. His laboratory also performed the genetic transformation of pink bollworm.

Involved in regulatory policy at the highest levels, Miller stressed the use of biotechnology in agriculture to increase food production and improve food quality.

"By 2050 there will be three billion more people on Earth," he said. "There is not enough food to go around now, which is partly a distribution problem, but all experts say the amount of food we produce has to increase. It is not possible to do that with organic methods."

Miller is the recipient of many international awards and honors, including the Gregor Mendel Award for research in Biological Sciences, presented by the Czech Academy of Sciences; designation as a Verrall Lecturer in London; a NATO Fellowship, University of Glasgow; and being named a fellow of the Royal Entomological Society, London.

He has published more than 260 publications including 109 peer-reviewed journal articles; 27 edited books and monographs; and 43 invited book chapters and review articles. He has been awarded more than $6 million in extramural funding to support his research.

Miller will begin his tenure as a Jefferson Science Fellow in August 2010, when he and the other nine fellows this year will meet with the different regional bureaus and more topical
