Theana Johnson.jpg

Théana Johnson is a biomedical engineering Masters student from Université Paris Descartes. She obtained her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from Imperial College London in 2019, during which she completed a year-long placement investigating the mechanism of action of an antimalarial drug at the University of Melbourne. Her Bachelor’s thesis focused on using molecular dynamics simulations to predict structural changes in mutated proteins. Currently, she is a visiting student in the Bioelectronics Lab, where she is working on applying friction-reduce coatings on implantable neural electronics as a means to reduce the trauma associated with their insertion into the brain.
