Lois Kathryn Miller (October 8, 1945[note 1] – November 9, 1999) was an American geneticist and academic. She was a Distinguished Research Professor of Genetics and Entomology at the University of Georgia.
Miller was born in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. She completed her undergraduate education at Upsala College and a Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Joining the faculty at the University of Idaho in 1976, she moved to the University of Georgia ten years later, becoming a Distinguished Research Professor of Genetics and Entomology. Miller focused her research on baculoviruses and programmed cell death. In 1991, her team at the University of Georgia discovered the anti-apoptotic properties of the baculoviral Early 35 kDa protein (P35).
