Senior Research Scientist at Center for Neuroscience, Brain Science Institute, Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST)
He received his master degree from Dongguk University and studied plant genetics. After graduating, he experienced a neuroscience lab at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center before applying the Ph.D. program. Currently, he is studying neuroscience in Nam lab at KIST as a research intern and is preparing to start his Ph.D. program.
I am a biologist, who is passionate about electrophysiology. I received my BSc in Biology and a MSc in Neuro- and bahavioral Biology from Free University of Berlin, Germany. At Nam lab, I plan to dissect pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease with strong emphasis on astrocyte using a wide range of methods including electrophysiology and optogenetics.
She has been selected as a talented trainee for the 4th industrial revolution by National Research Council of Science and Technology.
The NAM Lab employs a multi-disciplinary approach including optogenetic (chemogenetic), ex vivo electrophysiological, pharmacological and imaging techniques to find mechanistic explanations for how reactive astrocytes contribute to brain pathophysiology and/or how acupuncture works through neuro- and glio-modulation.
The NAM Lab always welcomes highly self-motivated students to discover their talents! Please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can make a time to meet.
The NAM Lab always welcomes highly self-motivated Ph.D.s to build up interesting stories of glia and neuroinflammation! Please e-mail me (email@example.com) with your CV (and a cover letter which includes what you have done in the past and what you want to get from the NAM lab).
