Johnson Lab

Welcome to the Johnson lab website. We are currently recruiting postdocs.

When oxygen levels drop in organisms or in their individual tissues, the resulting condition is called hypoxia. Hypoxia can be caused by many factors, including high altitude, lung disease, accidents or injuries, and even by infections. Our lab studies how the body responds to hypoxia. This is relevant to a wide range of diseases, including cancer, and our laboratory is interested in hypoxic response in disease as well as in normal physiology.
