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

My fun class project turned manuscript is now published! 🎉We used GIS to cluster and associate the social and physical environment with aggressive endometrial cancer subtypes mdpi.com/1660-4601/19/1…

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

For #TransDayOfVisibility I wrote how companies specifically can step up for trans rights Retweets and signing vague statements is not enough. Trans people need allies to combat the current anti-trans hysteria #TDOV #TransRightsAreHumanRights linkedin.com/pulse/companie… Retweeted by Anna Miller

#ASHGtrainee Mark your calendars for this work-life balance seminar! twitter.com/GeneticsSociet…

I had the great opportunity to welcome @cwru new students as the graduate student council president at fall convocation! If you look at the navy blue flag you can juuuust see my pink mask in the back!

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…

Everything in nature is complex and the effects of H. pylori are no different! I'm happy to share that my review on the protective and deleterious effects of H. pylori infection is out now! 🙂🦠🙁 nature.com/articles/s4143…

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…

I had the opportunity to interview @seesmallthings for the #ASHG Nascent Transcript about their recent paper, “Breaking the binary by coming out as a trans scientist.” Check out more about their work to build inclusive spaces! 🏳️‍⚧️🧬 ashg.org/publications-n… #ASHGtrainee

Here's a super cool resource to find a close vaccination site! #CuyahogaCounty twitter.com/gwen_donley/st…

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.
