Graham Johnson has specialized in visualizing molecular and cellular biology since graduating from Johns Hopkins in 1997 with a masters degree in Medical and Biological Illustration. He illustrated both editions of the textbook Cell Biology by Pollard & Earnshaw as a coauthor, and has created thousands of scientific visuals ranging from journal covers to pedagogic animations. Graham’s recent biophysics PhD work in the Molecular Graphics Lab at The Scripps Research Institute focused primarily on developing algorithms to enable scientists and illustrators to generate, simulate, and visualize molecular models of cells. Now with his own lab at The University of California, San Francisco as a QB3 Faculty Fellow, he continues to work with programmers to develop software that can interoperate the computational tools of science and art.
