Educational Background
Ph. D. Cancer Biomedical Science, NCC-GCSP (2020)
M.S. System Cancer Science, NCC-GCSP (2017)
Drop-out Dentistry Science (Basic), DDS. Ph.D. Crouse (2011)
B.S. Life Science, English Literature, Summa cum laude (scholarship), Hoseo Univ. (2010)
Research Interests
Dr. Kim interest neuro-oncology and its networks with microenvironment. Normal glial cells and its networks of brain is connected with tumor development, growth and resistance. And targeting the networks is a key concept for translational medicine approach into brain tumor patient therapeutics development in animal model. He has been involved brain tumor research and neurosurgery team of NCC and GCSP
