Profile from The Johns Hopkins University -

Edward Miller was named chief executive officer of Johns Hopkins Medicine, the 13th dean of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and vice president for medicine of The Johns Hopkins University in January 1997. His appointment followed a yearlong national search for the first CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine, an organization that formally integrates operations and planning of the School of Medicine with The Johns Hopkins Health System and Hospital to ensure their continued preeminence in education, discovery and patient care.

Under his aegis, both The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the School of Medicine consistently are ranked among the very best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, and the school continues to rank at the top in NIH research funding. Johns Hopkins Medicine's expansion in the past decade ranged from Maryland to Singapore. Currently, Miller is implementing a master plan to replace aging facilities on the East Baltimore medical campus and is cooperating with the city and state on development of a life sciences park adjacent to the campus. To ensure that Johns Hopkins Medicine plays a leadership role in protecting patients, Miller has established the Center for Innovation in Quality Patient Care.

An anesthesiologist who has authored or co-authored more than 150 scientific papers, abstracts and book chapters, Miller joined Johns Hopkins in 1994 as professor and director of the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine. He was named interim dean in 1996. He came to Johns Hopkins after eight years at Columbia University in New York, where he served as professor and chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology in the College of Physicians and Surgeons. Prior to that, he spent 11 years at the University of Virginia.

Miller's research has focused on the cardiovascular effects of anesthetic drugs and vascular smooth muscle relaxation. He has served as president of the Association of University Anesthesiologists, editor of Anesthesia and Analgesia, and editor of Critical Care Medicine. He served on the board of the International Anesthesia Research Society and was chairman of the FDA's Advisory Committee on Anesthesia and Life Support Drugs.

Miller is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences and is a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. He is also a member of Maryland's Health Care Access and Cost Commission and is on the boards of the Greater Baltimore Committee and the Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust Fund.

Born in February 1943 in Rochester, N.Y., Miller received his A.B. from Ohio Wesleyan University and his M.D. from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He was a surgical intern at University Hospital in Boston, chief resident in anesthesiology at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, and a research fellow in physiology at Harvard Medical School. He and his wife, Lynne, have four adult children.
