Biography

Dr. Kim received her Ph.D. in the Department of Nuclear Medicine at Seoul National University College of Medicine, South Korea in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. June-Key Chung. Dr. Kim moved to the Korea National Institute of Health to study the molecular imaging of high-risk pathogens during infection in living organisms. She joined LOMIN at NIBIB where she currently is a postdoctoral research fellow under the supervision of Dr. Shawn Chen. There, her research interests focus specifically on the development of novel imaging strategies and nano-probes to monitor specific biological processes under physiological settings. The final goal is to develop theranostic imaging agents using molecular imaging and nanomedicine techniques.
