Andrew Johnson earned a B.S. in vertebrate physiology from the Pennsylvania State University in 1998. He subsequently worked on gene regulatory research in C. elegans and neuroelectrophysiology in rodents before entering graduate school in 2003. He earned a Ph.D. in biomedical sciences from Ohio State University in 2007 with dual emphases in bioinformatics and pharmacogenomics. He came to the NIH for post-doctoral training in 2007 and became a tenure track investigator in 2012. Dr. Johnson has been nominated for and received numerous awards including the NHLBI Lenfant Fellowship and Genome Technology’s Young Investigator Award, and was elected as a Fellow of the American Heart Association. He has published more than 70 papers and has served as a reviewer for more than 20 journals. Dr. Johnson is active on several committees of the Functional Genomics and Translational Biology Council of the American Heart Association. He is also a member of the American Society for Human Genetics and the International Society for Computational Biology.
