Julene K Johnson, PhD is a cognitive neuroscientist and Professor at the UCSF Institute for Health & Aging. Her research program focuses on cognitive aging and covers two primary themes: 1) developing cost-effective and novel community-based programs to promote health for diverse older adults and 2) studying mild cognitive impairment as a risk for dementia and functional decline. Her research on community-based health promotion involves culturally and ethnically diverse older adults. She is currently collaborating with 12 Department of Aging and Adult Services Senior Centers in San Francisco to study the effect of a community choral program on the health and well-being of culturally diverse older adults.
Her studies about mild cognitive impairment aim to better understand the dysexecutive presentation of mild cognitive impairment. In 2010, she was a Fulbright scholar in Finland where she studied how singing in a community choir influences quality of life and well-being. She is currently on the Fulbright Specialist Roster (2012-2017).
