Madison Oliwa, BS
Madisson Oliwa received her Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology with a minor in Psychology from the University of New Hampshire in 2019. In Dr. Johnson’s cell culture lab, her goal was to better understand the progression of pancreatic cancer using RNAi to silence the expression of genes that are highly upregulated in pancreatic cancer. While receiving her undergraduate degree, she worked in direct care as a Licensed Nursing Assistant, at Womens Care of Nashua and in the Emergency Department at Elliot Hospital as a medical scribe.
Madisson is now a Research Technician in the Breast Tumor Immunology Lab at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute where she continues to pursue her passion for improving women's health. She is involved in deep immune-profiling of murine tumors to better understand how different therapies work with hopes to move new combinations of therapy into the clinic to treat patients with triple negative breast cancer. She also assists with the processing of human samples from current breast cancer clinical trials.
