Announcement: Dr. James Johnson re-appointed as the Graham King Research Chair

I am pleased to announce Dr. James Johnson has been re-appointed as the Graham King Research Chair at the Roth McFarlane Hand and Upper Limb Centre within the Department of Surgery, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University effective January 1, 2022 to December 31, 2026.

A major focus on Dr. Johnson’s research has been the engineering-based development of testing systems for biomechanical studies of the elbow and shoulder. He has been actively involved in the design, development and analysis of implant systems. The long-term objective of Dr. Johnson’s research is to employ novel approaches to further elucidate the biomechanics of the upper limb and provide a comprehensive clinically relevant approach to evaluation and treatment.

During the past five years Dr. Johnson has published 64 papers, and overall, more than 260 articles in peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Johnson has supervised over 60 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in engineering and surgery.
Dr. Johnson’s team has received numerous awards nationally and internationally over the past three decades.

Recently, he received the Faculty of Engineering Research Award, and was elected as a fellow to the Canadian Academy of Engineering.

Please join me in congratulating Dr. Johnson on his re-appointment.
