Brandon Johnson

Here's the story

Brandon worked alongside Associate Professor of Biology Shubhik DebBurman in the laboratory, charting the direction of Parkinson’s disease research. “In Parkinson’s disease, certain molecules in the brain misfold, which causes the death of brain tissue,” he explains. Their research looked at whether proteins would react in a similar way in a test tube and found that they would. “We met on a daily basis,” Brandon says. “I would contribute to the experiment by suggesting ways to refine it while following the path of the science.”
