Travis S. Johnson, PhD, is a researcher working at the intersection of data science, medicine and human genetics. In his role at the Indiana Biosciences Research Institute (IBRI), he supports efforts across disease teams to analyze high throughput data, facilitate the use of complex computational tools and develop novel data science solutions.
Before his start at the IBRI, Johnson started a faculty position at Indiana University School of Medicine department of biostatistics and health data science. During that time, he developed an independent research focus in machine learning, high throughput sequencing analysis, single cell technologies and multi-omics.

Besides his independent research, Johnson has a strong record of industry partnerships demonstrated by his bioinformatics consulting for Vascugen and Eli Lilly and Company. He believes these close partnerships with research shareholders across industry, academia and healthcare providers will drive the most important discoveries.
Since moving to Indiana, Johnson lives with his wife and two dogs in Broad Ripple where they enjoy the numerous parks and local restaurants.
