research overview

  • Johnson’s research focus is cardiovascular drug pharmacogenomics, and disease-gene associations that may be relevant to pharmacogenomics, and the influence of race/ethnicity on drug response and pharmacogenomics. The majority of her research centers around efforts in hypertension, heart failure, with a primary focus on proteins that are drug targets and the impact of their genetic polymorphisms on drug response and disease. Her research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health or the American Heart Association since 1990. She recently became a member of the NIH Pharmacogenetics Research Network, with a project focused on pharmacogenomics of antihypertensive drugs
