Matthew D. Johnson, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at University of Minnesota

Location: Minneapolis, MN United States

Matthew D. Johnson, PhD, earned his SB degree in engineering sciences from Harvard University and his PhD degree in biomedical engineering from the University of Michigan. He went on to complete an National Institutes of Health-National Research Science Award postdoctoral fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic, where he began investigating the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease and the mechanisms of deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy for treating parkinsonian motor signs.

Since 2009, Dr. Johnson has been on the faculty of the University of Minnesota as an assistant professor and scholar in the Institute for Translational Neuroscience. Dr. Johnson and his research laboratory have significant experience with electrophysiological biomarkers in pre-clinical models of PD, high-field magnetic resonance imaging, computational modeling of neuromodulation therapies, and development of subject-specific algorithms to program neuromodulation systems.
