About the speaker

Dr. Kim received his Ph.D. in Systems Biology and Bioinformatics under the co-supervision of Dr. Daehee Hwang at Seoul National University and Dr. Yong Song Gho at POSTECH (South Korea). During his postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Frederick P. Roth at the Donnelly Centre, University of Toronto (Canada), he published two first-author high-impact papers at Nature and Nature Biotech.

Currently, he is an assistant professor at the Department of Cancer Genetics and Genomics, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, USA for 2 years from Oct 2021, focusing on anti-cancer drug resistance mechanisms using novel functional genomics approach. The first application of the novel cancer model system was KRASG12C-dependent lung cancer which helped our lab awarded the first external grant on this topic.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
