Interim Program Chair of Chemistry
Dana Johnson teaches General Chemistry and Biochemistry I, along with the Organic Chemistry labs. In the past, he has taught all the various iterations of the Organic Chemistry lectures. His student populations center on the B.S. in Chemistry, B.S in Biochemistry and the Pre-Health Biology majors. Johnson’s research interests include assessing learning styles and success of the student in a first-semester organic chemistry class with the goal of influencing organic chemistry pedagogy. Johnson is also the Chemistry, Physics and Engineering Pre-Health advisor through the Office of Health Professions Advising, led by Harvey Havoonjian. He advises first-year pre-health majors, and focuses on advising pre-dental and pre-pharmacy students. Johnson enjoys integrative discussions in his classroom, drawing inferences of origin from the structural arrangement of organic and bio-organic molecules.
