Johnson Lab


The Johnson Lab focuses on imaging neurodegenerative disorders. More specifically, the lab is developing preventive therapies and treatment of Alzheimer's disease symptoms. Recently the lab has been investigating imaging agents that can detect tau deposits in the brain related to cognitive impairment. The lab is exploring ways to use these imaging techniques to detect the risk of developing impairment.
