Johanna Withers, PhD

Johanna brings expertise in RNA and molecular biology to Scipher Medicine. Working at Yale University with Joan Steitz, Johanna’s postdoctoral research described how viruses use long noncoding RNAs to manipulate host cells. Now, she is leveraging the power of network medicine to direct the development of PrismDx in autoimmune diseases. Johanna received her Ph.D. in Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology and Biophysics from the Johns Hopkins University.
