Who we are

The Johnson lab seeks to transform our understanding of disease using structural, biochemical, and biological techniques. We complement biophysical and theoretical approaches, such as x-ray crystallography, molecular dynamics simulations, molecular modeling, and general protein chemistry techniques, with disease modeling techniques in mammalian cell culture and genetically engineered mice.

What we value

The Johnson Lab values diversity and encourages highly talented and motivated individuals of all backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, religious beliefs and practices, and disabilities to join us in pushing the boundaries of our collective scientific understanding

What you will learn

Thanks to amazing technological advances in wet lab and dry lab techniques, structural biology is undergoing a renaissance. One goal of the Johnson lab is to train the next generation of scientists interested in protein structure and function. Members of the Johnson lab will learn structural biology and biochemical techniques with an emphasis on validation and interpretation in biological systems. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
