Professional Bio

Dr. Milner is a board certified Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologist with particular expertise in blood and marrow transplantation. During her Fellowship and Junior Faculty years at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Dr. Milner gained experience with transplantion for both pediatric and adult patients. In addition to serving as an attending physician for Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and BMT patients, she also attends on the Adult BMT unit at URMC/SMH and has recently been appointed Medical Director of the Inpatient/Outpatient (IPOP) Unit for the BMT Program.

Dr. Milner was previously the Principal Investigator for a basic laboratory research program focusing on the role of Notch signaling in hematopoietic and vascular differentiation of embryonic stem cells. Her current efforts are directed toward the translation of stem cell laboratory research to clinical transplantation studies and protocols. This interest is facilitated by her role as Medical Director of the Stem Cell Processing Laboratory at URMC/SMH.
