Personal Profile

After majoring in Biochemistry at Yonsei University, South Korea, I joined Professor Mike Cousin’s lab as a PhD student on November 2020.

Research

My project aims to elucidate the developmental trajectory of the dysfunctional synaptic vesicle (SV) recycling at the presynapse in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) models. Dysfunctional SV recycling was seen in multiple ASD models but it is not known whether this phenotype is transient or permanent. The time-course analysis of SV recycling will give us insights wherein the timepoint for pharmaceutical intervention for treating ASD in the future.
