Since starting his graduate study at Seoul National University, Dr. Kim worked in the fields of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, emphasizing on genome instability, DNA damage and repair, cell cycle control, and cancer biology. After receiving his Ph.D. degree with the study of triplet repeat DNA instability in E. coli bacteria from Texas A&M University, Dr. Kim`s postdoctoral research at Harvard University focused on elucidating molecular mechanisms of DNA damage checkpoint responses in the nematode C. elegans embryos. Dr. Kim`s works were published in several peer-reviewed journals.
