Dr. Johnson is one of the directors of the Bioengineering Research Laboratory.

In collaboration with surgeons, orthopaedic biomechanical research is conducted with special interest in the upper limb. In addition, a bi-axial servo-hydraulic testing machine is used to test structures. The research laboratory which is located at the Lawson Health Research Institute, is dedicated to a “benchtop-to-bedside” approach, where discoveries in the laboratory are targeted to directly enhance patient care.
