Biographical Info

Jill Johnson has a Ph. D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Johnson research focus is on molecular chaperones in the cell and how chaperones prevent interactions that result in protein unfolding and how the chaperones protect cells from stress such as heat. Currently Johnson is working with Chris Marx and his team to help them understand how cells respond to stress induced by growth in the presence of formaldehyde.
