    Prof. Jong Hwan SEO and his team Wins a Contract from the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research

    Prof. Jong Hwan SEO (School of Mechanical Engineering) and his research team won a research project from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), an affiliated organization of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL). This is the first time for SKKU to obtain a research project at US Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the team will receive a research fund, $100,000 US dollar every year. The project is about development of eco-friendly artificial cork material by using natural materials. Cork as largely known as a cap of wine bottle, is a porous material that is mostly collected from quercus suber living in the shores of the Mediterranean. It has special physical properties: (1) lightweight (2) reverts to its original shape even after compression, and (3) absorbs a large amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Cork’s unique and superior material properties are attributed to the cork’s special porous structure as well its chemical structure. In particular, cork’s excellent permeability and elasticity are exhibited due to the hydrophobic lipid called Suberin. Based on this fact, Prof. Jong Hwan SEO and his team proposed a research to synthesize eco-friendly materials with uniform physical properties by selectively extracting and recombining cork’s Suberin. “This study will be a cornerstone for the sustainable development of environmentally friendly materials that can be used in various engineering fields beyond the limits of application of existing natural materials,” said Prof. SEO.

    [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.
