Kristen E. Johnson, PhD
Teaching FieldsCellular Biology, Microbiology, General Biology
My research interests are in understanding the way cells communicate by cell-contact dependent junctions. In particular, I am interested in the mechanisms involved in the assembly and disassembly of adherens and gap junctions. Cancer progression is often marked by changes in cell adhesion and gap junctional communication.
