Roger Miller, Ph.D., has been the program director for Neural Prosthesis Development at the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders since joining the NIDCD in 2002. He is also responsible for coordinating the institute’s Small Business Innovation Research (SEED Funding) program and other projects in the Division of Scientific Program’s Hearing and Balance Program. He has represented the NIDCD's mission areas in biomedical engineering, regulatory science, translational science, nanoscience, open-source hardware and software development, hearing aid signal processing, and data science on a number of trans-NIH committees.

Prior to joining the NIH, he was an assistant professor at the Duke University Medical Center studying electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve, otoacoustic emissions, and auditory neuroscience. He holds a B.S. in chemistry from the University of Indiana and earned his Ph.D. in biophysics at the University of California, Berkeley, while studying changes in the retina's neural responses due to light adaptation. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where he studied the effects of noise-induced hearing loss on signal processing in the cochlea and neural circuits of the dorsal cochlear nucleus.
