Melanoma and non-melanoma tissue banks
Dr. Johnson's clinical research is focused on skin cancer epidemiology, therapy, education, and biology. He has used his clinical environment as a research base that facilitates advancement of knowledge in his field, particularly in melanoma. He established tissue banks in both non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancer with a linkable prospective comprehensive clinical database.
The general approach from a clinical and translational point of view is to integrate data and specimens with experimental
models to identify molecular mechanisms of disease to develop rational strategies for better treatment.
