Roman Miller

DEPARTMENT: Emeriti

POSITION: Professor Emeritus/Biology

EMAIL: millerrj@emu.edu

Dr. Roman J. Miller is the Daniel B. Suter Endowed Professor of Biology and the Director of the MA in Biomedicine program at Eastern Mennonite University, Harrisonburg, VA where he has taught courses in physiology, anatomy, developmental biology, animal science, bioethics, and philosophy of science for the past thirty years. Roman received his Ph.D. in biomedical science from Kent State University, Kent, Ohio and completed a post-doctoral research program at West Virginia University, Morgantown, WV, prior to teaching at EMU.

Roman is married to Dr. Elva (Bowman) Miller a retired optometrist. The Millers live on Knoll Acres, a small farm near Harrisonburg, Virginia, where they are busy raising organically certified blueberries and a flock of registered Barbados Blackbelly sheep. The Millers enjoy reading, gardening, horticulture, traveling, fishing, and working on their farm. They are active members at Dayton Mennonite Church, Dayton, Virginia.

Current research interests:
*Blueberry organic horticulture
*Creating conditions to enhance nutrient-dense blueberries
*Alcohol teratogenesis on mouse embryonic development
*Anabaptist perspective in bioethics
