Overview

  • “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin

    Dr. Kristen Johnson is passionate about training her students to become problem-solving scientists. Her approach to classroom teaching involves collaborative team-based learning, and her courses integrate critical reading and analysis of primary research articles. With a focus on experiential learning, her laboratory course work closely complements lecture instruction, incorporates the latest technologies and is often inquiry-based: student-designed experiments with unknown outcomes.

    Dr. Johnson mentors many undergraduate students conducting research in her cancer biology lab, which focuses on understanding the role of several genes in the progression of pancreatic cancer. Using RNA interference and CRISPR to modulate gene expression, the Johnson lab studies the impacts of altering the expression of these genes on the malignancy of pancreatic cancer cells.
