    Biography
      Dr. Johann is a physician/scientist and Associate Professor at UAMS and Director of Informatics at the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy. His scientific focus concerns the application of advanced molecular profiling and high-throughput technologies for the characterization of molecular alterations in cancer cells. Areas of emphasis include next-gen sequencing (NGS), high-resolution identity-based mass spectrometry (proteomics), laser capture microdissection (LCM), bioinformatics, and cancer biology. Previously, he was an assistant investigator at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Center for Cancer Research (CCR), Medical Oncology Branch in Bethesda, MD. Prior to attending medical school he worked as an engineer for the Unisys Corporation for six years, where he directed a team of five engineers on projects involving avionic software design and instrumentation. During this time he also earned a graduate degree in computer science with distinction from Hofstra University. Dr. Johann received his M.D., from Case Western and received a graduate with distinction honors for Computer Applications in Medicine. Following residency he then became a postdoctoral research fellow at the NIH/NCI Lab of Pathology, under the mentorship of Dr. Lance Liotta, with a focus on clinical proteomics. He was twice selected for an AACR Scholar-in-Training Award for research work involving novel bioinformatics. Medical Oncology/Hematology fellowships were completed at NIH in the NCI and NHLBI. He has authored ~40 publications and contributed to three patents.
