Dana Johnson's graduate work in chemistry involved the synthesis and characterization of viral fusion proteins in both the human respiratory syncytial virus and human T-cell leukemia virus. As one interested in the intersection between faith and science, Johnson was among the first graduates of the Master's in Science and Religion program here at Biola. He continues the conversation with his students through his classes in organic chemistry. He and his wife have two daughters, and they attend and serve a local church in Whittier.
