Anneka Johnson

Miller lab

Anneka graduated Magna Cumae Laude with a BS in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology from the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire in 2019. She is the 2021-2022 Cancer Biology MCB student representative and a member of the Miller lab. Research in the Miller lab focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that allow estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer to survive anti-estrogen therapy and lay dormant in the body for many years before giving rise to recurrence in ~1/3 of patients. Anneka is interested in understanding what leads to metastasis and how that process is unique in each organ. Additionally, she has worked on several other projects in the lab including studying metabolic rewiring and estrogen therapy as a method of overcoming anti-estrogen resistance.  Outside the lab she enjoys spending her free time hiking, skiing, gardening, and embroidering.
