Research & Publications

Research Summary

Dr. Johnson’s research interests focus on neonatal infection prevention and global health. In collaboration with colleagues in Infectious Disease, she has led a multidisciplinary research team for three CDC-funded studies focused on neonatal healthcare-associated infections in low resource settings. She is interested in the epidemiology of neonatal bloodstream infections and antimicrobial resistance, using the Comprehensive Unit-based Safety Program (CUSP) to improve healthcare worker adherence to best practices in infection prevention, and assessing the role of maternal colonization in the transmission of pathogens to neonates. Dr. Johnson has served as a technical expert to the CDC in a landscape analysis of neonatal infection prevention in low resource settings, work supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. To enhance her training in clinical research methodology, Dr. Johnson received her Ph.D. in April 2020, in Clinical Investigation through the Graduate Training Program in Clinical Investigation (GTPCI); a joint program of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She was recently awarded a K23 application from the NIH to support her research and career development.
