Dr. Johnson did a residency in Anatomic Pathology, Fellowship in Neuropathology and Fellowship in Cell Biology at Vanderbilt Medical School. He was on the faculty at Vanderbilt for fifteen years becoming an Associate Professor with tenure, Director of Neuropathology and Director of the Neuropathology Training Program. He has been on the University of Rochester School of Medicine as a Professor of Neuropathology with tenure, Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of Neuropathology for over a decade. His diagnostic activities include neurosurgical and autopsy neuropathology, a consultation practice and as a consultant to the Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office. He also lectures at other medical schools. He has over 150 publications and is first author on over half.

My lab studies leptomeningeal diseases especially meningeal neoplasia. Our emphasis in the past has been on identifying the role of growth factor/growth factor receptor expression and downstream signaling in the pathogenesis of meningiomas. This has included, for the first time, identifying expression and possible roles for the transforming growth factor beta superfamily, MEK-1- MAPK and PI3K-Akt pathways. We have also evaluated cerebrospinal effects on the leptomeningeal and meningioma cell proliferation. Additional studies have evaluated the expression and roles of mesothelin in the leptomeninges, metastases to the leptomeninges and in meningiomas.
