Yale School of Public Health assistant professor Dr. Caroline Johnson, received the Young Investigator Award from the Metabolomics Association of North America (MANA) 2019 at its annual conference of the MANA on November 16.
The MANA Young Investigator Award recognizes the most accomplished early career investigators for exhibiting exceptional novelty, noteworthy contributions, and substantial study that expand the boundaries of metabolomics research. This award also provides the opportunity for MANA early career members to present their work in a single-track plenary environment.
Dr. Johnson also presented her work as a single-track plenary at the conference after she received the award.
Dr. Johnson’s research utilizes mass spectrometry-based metabolomics to understand the role of metabolites in human health. She investigates the relationship between genetic and environmental influences (diet, hormones and microbiome) in colon cancer. Johnson’s lab primarily focuses on developing metabolomics for epidemiologic and population-level analysis. She is a member of the Department of Environmental Health Sciences.Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on December 13
