    [Start-up Stories] Laboratory Start-up Exploration Team Visits National Institute of Health

    As one of the 2018 Korea I-Corps projects which prepare scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the university laboratory, and accelerate the economic and societal benefits of start-up exploration projects that are ready to move toward commercialization, SKKU’s Laboratory Start-up Exploration Team visited the National Institute of Health in the USA on August 8th. The National Institute of Health (NIH) is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and public health research, founded in the late 1870s. The NIH comprises 27 separate institutes and centers of different biomedical disciplines and is responsible for many scientific accomplishments. Many researches are primarily conducted at the main campus. At NIH, the team could meet 3 pharmacists graduated SKKU (Sydney KIM (Dept. of Pharmacy, Admission year 1978), Robert LEE (Dept. of Biology, Admission year 1993) and David LEE)). The students asked several questions to NIH officers in order to see the possibility of securing customers throughout lab technology and commercialization. From this visit, the Laboratory Start-up Exploration Team will continue their exchange activities with NIH. SKKU’s I-Corps project will continue until 2020. Every year, they select new members of the Laboratory Start-up Exploration Team. If you would like to get more information on the process, please call 031-290-5854 or send email to britney82@skku.edu.

    SKKU - Central Party School of the Communist Party of China Signed MOU

    SKKU and Central Party School of the Communist Party of China signed an MOU on July 30th (Mon) at 600th Anniversary Building, for mutual collaboration and academic exchange activities. The Central Party School of the Communist Party of China sent Mr. Hwang (黄宪起), a member of the academic board as a representative of their school. The Central Party School of the Communist Party of China is the higher education institution which specially trains officials for the Communist Party of China. Many political moguls such as Mao Zedong (毛澤東), HuJintao(胡锦涛), and Xi Jinping(習近平) served as a president of the school. In 2009, SKKU started exchange activities with the Central Party School of the Communist Party of China by supporting Korean educational programs at school. Since 2013, Sungkyun China Research Center and International Strategy Institute of the Central Party School of the Communist Party of China signed an MOU for joint academic forums, research activities, and joint publication. Through this agreement, the two universities agreed on expanding their exchange activities to the university-wide. This is the first time for the Central Party School of the Communist Party of China to develop university-wide exchange cooperation with Korean university.They will hold the annual forum for the common interest field and try to expand exchange activities to related research/academic institutes.

    Students at the Dept. of Dance Presented Dance Performances for Korea-China Cultural Festival

    A student team at the Dept. of Dance at SKKU performed at the 'Korea-China Cultural Festival' and 'Korea-China Friendship Week Cultural Performances' held in Harbin and Lanzhou, China from July 1st to July 7th. At the stage, korean performances such as Korean dance, Taekwondo, Bongsan Talchum and Non-Verbal Performance (Nanta) as well as performances by Chinese performers, took place for a total of 100 minutes. The event was hosted by the Korean Cultural Center and the Korean Embassy in China and was sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Korean Culture and Arts Committee, and the Korea Foundation for the Promotion of Traditional Performing Arts. Through deep exchanges of traditional cultures of the two countries, Korea and China are expanding artistic activities and contributing to the development of art culture and the friendship. The student dance team is composed of graduate students and undergraduate students at Sungkyunkwan University. In addition to this performance, they had performed at the various Korea-China cultural shows, including Beijing and Guju.

    The 5th International Forum on Innovation in Higher Education

    The 5th International Forum on Innovation in Higher Education was held on July 18th (Wed) at Business Building 33B301, with the subject of ‘Student Success in College.’ The forum was hosted by Creative Informatics HRD Unit and Education Innovation Center at SKKU. Due to the rapid change of circumstances of higher education, global leading universities is now emphasizing ‘student success’ as their best value and trying to provide a best campus environment for students’ education. In particular, universities are eager to find high impact practices (systems and programs) so that students can make successful campus life by themselves. In accordance with this trend, the forum invited Dr. George D. Kuh who introduced the idea of “Student Success and Participation” for the first time. He talked about high impact practices programs that are running by global leading universities. Also, Prof. Sang Hoon BAE (Chair of Education Innovation Center at SKKU) introduced a self-diagnosed tool to see how well each university teaches. At the forum, about 200 people from the government, universities, and research institutes participated and discussed effective strategies and future development plans for higher education innovation.

    A research group of Prof. In Su KIM decorated the cover paper of JACS

    A research group led by Prof. In Su KIM, School of Pharmacy at Sungkyunkwan University, decorated the cover paper of ‘JACS (Journal of the American Chemical Society, IF: 13.858)’, which is the world's preeminent journal in chemistry, on the June. A research on artificial molecular computers that could mimic advanced functions in the cell signaling system is a global interest. The artificial computing systems perform various math functions based on electrical signals, but in vivo, their specific and advanced functions are realized through information processing of appropriate chemical signals. In particular, the cell signaling processes can communicate and synchronize each other in a precisely organized manner to implement their specific functions. As such, much effort has been devoted to developing artificial computing systems analogous to biological signaling processes. This research team first reports an artificial three-state molecular computer capable of performing advanced functions similar to those found in biological computing process. This was achieved by control of molecular recognition and three electronic states via ionic chemical stimuli. Especially, it was also demonstrated that the developed system conducted a cascade reaction for a high-valued organic chemical and functional polymer synthesis. It is also envisioned that artificial molecular computers mimicking the intravascular signaling system hold a great promise in developing smart drug delivery systems that would be used for early diagnosis and treatment of many important diseases. This research was supported by a Basic Research Laboratory (BRL) grant of the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF) funded by the Korean government (MSIP).
