Sue Ann Miller investigated the influence of localized cell division and cell death on shaping early vertebrate embryos. She presented her research and approaches to education in Asia, Europe, Latin America and throughout North America, and published her work in Developmental Biology, the Journal of Experimental Zoology and Anatomical Sciences Education, among others. She co-authored and illustrated A Laboratory Perspectus of Snake Anatomy (1970). She served on education committees of the Society for Developmental Biology and the American Association of Anatomists, and on the board of directors of Sigma Xi, the scientific research honor society.

Miller taught at the University of Colorado-Boulder, Oberlin College, and with teaching teams in Anatomy at Harvard Medical School before she became a faculty member in the Joint Program in Life Sciences at Kirkland and Hamilton College. She remained on College Hill following the merger of Kirkland and Hamilton.

Professor Miller earned her doctorate in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado-Boulder. Her Bachelors and Masters in Environmental, Organismal and Population Biology from other departments at the University of Colorado-Boulder gave her broad experience to inform her teaching, her research and her life.
