About

I am an associate professor, with background in structural biology, biochemistry, genetic and protein engineering, bioinformatics, computational biology, drug-design, epigenetic therapy of cancers. I have an extensive experience in interdisciplinary scientific collaborations. My laboratory studies the functions, structures, and mechanisms of transcription factors for developing new drugs against cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, and stroke. Work in my research group is multi-disciplinary and it incorporates many processes of the early-stage drug development. My research is at the interface between biochemistry, pharmacology, neuroscience, structural biology, and computational biology. Methods development concerns news tools in bioinformatics and molecular modeling of proteins for our research needs. Prior joining the Kyungpook National University, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California (USA) at Davis consecutively in David K. Wilson's lab (Molecular and Cellular biology dept.) and in Patrice Koehl's lab (Genome center).
