Background and interests

I received a PhD degree in Medicinal Chemistry & Pharmacognosy at The Ohio State University (OSU) under the guidance of Dr. Werner Tjarks in 2006. Before joining the graduate program at OSU, I earned an M.S degree in Pharmacy (advisor: Dr. Moonwoo Chun) at the Seoul National University in 1996 and worked as a research scientist in the Drug Discovery Division of AmorePacific Corporation from 1996 to 2001. I joined the Small Animal Imaging Resources Program (SAIRP) at Johns Hopkins in 2006. My research interests include discovery and development of therapeutic and diagnostic probes against cancer and viral infections.
