Hannah JohnsonHannah entered into science due to a fascination with mass spectrometry techniques and how they can be used to gain quantitative insight into cellular signalling. During her PhD in Professor Simon Gaskell’s lab at the University of Manchester she developed methodologies for the absolute quantification of phosphorylation stoichiometry. From there, to put her love of mass spectrometry to the test, she worked as a post-doc in the lab of Forest White at MIT where she applied mass spectrometric methodologies to understand the effects of deregulated receptor tyrosine kinases on tyrosine phosphorylation signalling in human glioblastoma. Hannah hopes to further develop her skill set in the Cook lab by aiming to understand how cancer cells become resistant to small molecule inhibitors to receptor tyrosine kinases such as FGFR. Hannah’s outside interests include embroidery, reading, and movies.
