My interest is cancer. I would like to analyze a lot of information about cancer in order to understand it from a system biological perspective. Through this, I want to understand the mechanism of cancer and suggest effective treatment.

System biology is beneficial to understand the complicated life phenomena. So I want to figure out the uncertain relation between cancer and the DNA by system biology. Not only that I want to understand the relation between brain function and the DNA by system biology. Especially, how DNA affects synapse sensitivity and memory progress and what other factors affect the brain function.

Cancer is still a disease to overcome. I want to do research cancer through system biology, which understands complex life phenomena as whole systems rather than as individual components. So, I want to find the appropriate anti-cancer drug targets or drug synergism by experimenting directly with the significant results from cancer network simulation and biological data analysis. As a result, I want to do research that can actually help people suffering from cancer.

As biotechnology improves, massive amounts of biological data is accumulated. Such data therefore, needs to be processed in order to understand the interactions between the components and understand the biological system. In order to understand such regulatory networks, biotechnology along with the use of computers is required and will eventually help solve problems regarding human health.

As everyone has different reactions to certain drugs, considering one’s genetic information is becoming important for disease treatment. By constructing a network model integrating patient’s genetic information, the network dynamics in response to a drug is observable. Eventually my goal is to discover an optimal cancer drug specifically for the individual.

Kyeong Hwan Han (Biotechnology)
I'm interested in treatment of cancer. Cancer is one of the most complex phenomenons and it has emergent properties, so i belive that systemistic approachs are needed for conquest of cancer. I want to make a contribution to treatment of cancer using methodology of systems biology, immunology, and synthetic biology. I'm interested particulary in two thing. First, repressing cancer cell's expresion of inhibitory molecules like PD-L1. Second, immune cell control to kill cancer cells specifically.

One of the characteristics of biological phenomena is emergent property, which means "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts". With these characteristics, I think that the entire system should be targeted, not a single molecule, for the exploration of life. Therefore, I want to figure out factors and mechanisms that determine the fate of cells through systems biology and further realize precision medicine.

The development of BT and IT has allowed scientists to study living things from a new perspective called System biology. Systems biology is a new field of biological research in which biological networks are constructed and analyze dynamic interactions of biomolecules. This helps us understand various life phenomena, including cancer and aging. My research goal is to construct biological networks associated with cancer and aging, and use the models to find novel drug targets for cancer and aging-related diseases.

There have been many studies on cancer so far, and the complexity of cancer pathways and the heterogeneity between cancer subtypes have become more prominent. However, in order to do research beyond one step further than now, cancer should be viewed from a different perspective. My interest is to find a common property, which is not about individual genes but about complex interactions of various genes, that can penetrate all specific networks of various cancer subtypes. And by applying this concept in practice, my ultimate goal is to treat malignant cancer cells to become more controllable.

Jeonghwan Min (Life Science and Biotechnology)
Although we have progressed tremendously in elucidating individual signaling pathways, much of what happens when these pathways interact with each other is still unknown. This is a serious problem because real cellular dynamics happen at a multiple-pathway level.
Systems biology seeks to simulate real cellular dynamics by focusing on these pathway interactions. With the systems biology approach, I seek to create a platform for discovering novel drug targets and drug combinations for a disease. My ultimate goal is to use this platform to cure long-unresolved diseases such as cancer and aging.
