Academic/Research Interests

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.


Johnson served on the Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee of the Food and Drug Administration (2000-2004), and is also serving a five year term on the Pediatric Heart Disease Clinical Research Network Protocol Review Committee for the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute at NIH.
