Matthew Johnson


I completed my PhD at Yale in the lab of Nenad Sestan, working on gene expression patterns and molecular mechanisms influencing human cortical development. During postdoctoral training with Chris Walsh at Boston Children’s, I continued to work on cortical stem cell diversity and functions using both human tissue and animal models, including mice and ferrets. As a staff scientist in the Stevens lab located within the Stanley Center at the Broad Institute, I coordinate and contribute to a number of collaborative, interdisciplinary projects focused on understanding the role of microglia and complement-mediated synaptic pruning in schizophrenia and other psychiatric disorders.
