Research Interests
The primary objective of Dr. Johnson’s research group is to create a model to successfully translate promising chemical entities from natural sources for cancer chemoprevention from pre-clinical research to phase I human clinical trials.  As an example, ongoing projects are investigating phytochemicals from the Mediterranean herb Rosemary and the mangosteen fruit for cancer chemoprevention and/or chemotherapy applications.  These unique phytochemicals are being evaluated for understanding their mechanism of action, pharmacokinetic properties, and in vivo efficacy in animal models.
