Keynote Speakers

Keynote Speaker I. 김선 교수님 (Seoul National University)

Sun Kim is Professor in the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Director of Bioinformatics Institute, and an affiliated faculty for the Interdisciplinary Program in Bioinformatics at Seoul National University. The main research interest in Sun Kim’s lab is to develop computational methods and information systems for characterizing biological mechanisms underlying phenotypes. His computational methods are to relate chemical/molecular features to biological mechanisms, and then to phenotypes such as cancer subtypes, drug response, and toxicity. In other words, Sum Kim’s lab aim to define phenotypes in terms of the molecular and chemical features by identifying important biological functions.

Before joining SNU, he was Chair of Faculty Division C; Director of Center for Bioinformatics Research, an Associate Professor in School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington. Prior to joining IU in 2001, he worked at DuPont Central Research from 1998 to 2001, and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from 1997 to 1998. Sun Kim received B.S and M.S and Ph.D in Computer Science from Seoul National University, KAIST and the University of Iowa, respectively.

Sun Kim is a recipient of Outstanding Junior Faculty Award at Indiana University 2004, US NSF CAREER Award DBI-0237901 in 2003. He is actively contributing to the bioinformatics community, serving on the editorial board for journals including editors for the METHODS journal and, associate editor-in-chief for ACM/IEEE Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, having served on the board of directors for ACM SIG Bioinformatics and for education for the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Bioinformatics. Among many service activates in Korea, he served on Samsung Future Technology Committee for 2016-2018, a member of The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) of the Korean Government for 2019-2020, President of Korea Artificial Intelligence Society (2016-2018) and Vice President of Korea Society of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (2011-present).

Keynote Speaker II. 오성환 교수님 (Harvard University)

Sungwhan Oh received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry, summa cum laude, at Seoul National University in South Korea in 2003. He moved to Boston for his graduate studies in the Division of Medical Science at Harvard Medical School, and defended his PhD dissertation on the biosynthesis and pro-resolving activity of endogenous lipid mediators in 2009. He continued his postdoctoral training on the gut microbiota and its immunomodulatory factors in the Department of Microbiology and Immunobiology, with support from NIAID NRSA T32 (2011-2013), Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation Research Fellowship Award (2013–2016) and NIDDK Research Scientist Development Award (2015–2020).

Sungwhan joined the Center for Experimental Therapeutics and Reperfusion Injury (CETRI) in the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital as a faculty member in 2018. Oh lab is a team of young, enthusiastic scientists applying a broad range of knowledge to the dissection of host–microbiota–environment interactions. Our combined expertise in chemistry, microbiology, and immunology synergizes our investigations into the structures of molecular factors produced by symbionts and the functions of these factors in host physiology and disease.

Frenette at Albert Einstein College of medicine. During his postdoctoral fellow years, Dr. Lee mainly focused on changing cellular phenotype, such as aging process of neutrophils. In sickle cell disease (SCD), number of aged neutrophils is known to be positively correlated with vaso-occlusive episodes (VOE), which is most common clinical manifestations of the disease. Dr. Lee characterized and determined the transitional process of naïve neutrophils to aged neutrophils which is regulated by microbiome-derived metabolites, resulting in exacerbating vaso-occlusive crisis (VOC) in sickle cell disease. In KRICT, Dr. Lee is working on diagnosis of infectious disease in human by using mouse mimic models. He has been developing microfluidics platform in order to diagnose the disease sensitively but fast by using pathogen proteins or immune cell-derived systems. It would be simple and easy to diagnose and handle disease. Dr. Lee has received his Ph.D. degree in immunology at Sungkyunkwan University
