Professor Yoonkey Nam’s research team from the Department of Bio and Brain Engineering has developed a technology that uses inkjet printing to create thermo-plasmonic interfaces capable of modulating neuron activity.
Earlier this month, the 2018 First Half-Year KAIST · POSTECH · UNIST Career Fair was hosted on campus. It took place over three days from March 6 to March 8 in the Lyu Keun-chul Sports Complex (N3) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Professor Hoi-Jun Yoo of the School of Electrical Engineering and his research team developed an artificial intelligence (AI) semiconductor that efficiently employs deep learning by applying variable artificial neural network technology.
A joint research team led by Professor Sukbok Chang and Professor Mu-hyun Baik from the Department of Chemistry achieved a breakthrough — coming up with a new strategy for synthesizing this ring-shaped molecule from readily available hydrocarbons in nature.
A research team from the School of Energy and Chemical Engineering at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) led by Sang-Young Lee has developed a battery that promises exceptional safety and flexibility.
While there is yet little understood about autoimmune diseases, a Yale University research team has managed to extend our insight a little further. Through experimentation with samples of mice, the team was able to demonstrate how the gut bacteria Enterococcus gallinarum could be translocated into other organs including the liver, spleen, and lymph nodes.
Despite some debates, it is generally accepted that the human hippocampus generates new neurons even in adulthood. Yet, research led by Dr. Arturo Alvarez-Buylla and his team from University of California, San Francisco discovered evidence that neurogenesis in the human hippocampus drops drastically as age progresses.
On March 19, the opening ceremony for the newly completed Academic Cultural Complex (E9) was held. With over 34.9 billion KRW invested in the renovation, the old library building has been reborn with a new exterior and interior, as well as an appended Cultural Building.
The questionable conditions, insular medical society, and the lack of financial support all converge at a keystone of the arch that is the Korean medical system — education. Despite the pristine image illuminating the Korean medical society, much paddling occurs under the surface to keep the reputation afloat. The brutal and elitist medical education system in Korea aids little in disassembling the rigid structure, and in fact instigates many issues currently in place.
800 million KRW in seven months. In Korea, where the position of a doctor holds high prestige in society, it is pretty unbelievable for a doctor to be in debt. In the winter of 2013, however, Dr. Cook-Jong Lee of Ajou University Hospital found himself 800 million KRW in debt after paying for multiple helicopter transportation fees for emergency patients in unreachable areas.
