Dr. Caroline Johnson, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences at Yale School of Public Health. Her lab’s research focus is to develop a deeper understanding of sex-specific differences in metabolism that influence colorectal cancer etiology, progression, and response to therapeutics.
Like Dr. Hiroshi Tsugawa, Dr. Johnson is also passionate about untargeted metabolomics. Her laboratory primarily concentrates on comprehending the role of environmental and genetic factors on colorectal cancer etiology and progression. Additionally, she has launched a new area of investigation to explore the impact of environmental chemicals, particularly Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) chemicals, on colorectal cancer.
