The primary focus of Dr. Gail Johnson’s research group is on the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration. The lab has a longstanding interest in the pathogenic processes in Alzheimer disease, and more recently in stroke and spinal cord injury (SCI). For their studies they use a wide variety of different approaches from in vitro enzyme assays with purified proteins, to studies in whole animals. This broad-based approach allows them to translate what they learn about a process or signaling pathway at the molecular level to the in vivo situation. Currently all the positions in my lab are filled. However, when positions become available I will post them on AURA.
