Anna Miller is a graduate student in the Department of Genetics and Genome Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. Anna earned a Bachelor's of Arts at Albion College with a double major in Biology and Music. Anna's research interests are broad and span the genetic and environmental aspects of human disease. She uses both traditional and novel statistical and bioinformatic approaches in her work. Outside of the lab, Anna is passionate about science communication, advocating for graduate students, and science policy. Anna is a frequent contributor to The Nascent Transcript, quarterly blog of the American Society of Human Genetics featuring original content by and for trainee members.

The Career Development Committee met yesterday and we have many exciting events being planned for trainees and for everyone else at #ASHG22! Make sure you take register by August 30th to take advantage of the discount! Looking forward to seeing everyone there! #ASHGtrainee twitter.com/GeneticsSociet… Retweeted by Anna Miller
I often feel extremely helpless in the face of such overt white supremacist violence but the fact that he cited GWAS on educational attainment really cements for me that academia desperately needs physicians and scientists who understand how data we generate perpetuates racism Retweeted by Anna Miller
Such a pleasure! Check out the recent ASHG Nascent Transcript to hear more about Dr. McCreight's career path! 🧬✏️ twitter.com/jeymccreight/s…
And it's peer reviewed! It's been a busy summer and I'm excited to share this paper in its final form. Read more about a ODC1 gene variant precision medicine-base approach to treat gastric cancer! nature.com/articles/s4138… twitter.com/a_k_miller/sta…
Back from a twitter hiatus to share that I have a project out on preprint! A human ODC1 gene variant associates with gastric cancer independent of the H. pylori risk factor, CagA twitter.com/medrxivpreprin…
This is timely, but I'm excited to share a Nature Careers Piece about being trans in STEM. Here I share how my lived experiences with my intersectional identities have impacted my ability to find my voice as a scientist.
