Scientist, philosopher and writer who elucidates the mystery of brain; this is my future self. I have been dreaming of establish the consilience of macroscopic view and microscopic view in neuroscience. Underlying principle suppose to be in the place, where top-down and bottom-up approaches meet. Emergent property & complex network science may penetrate the levels of hierarchy and furnish the multi-scale insights to 'What is Interlligence? How it emerges? and Why?'.

Keywords : Systems brain theory, Neural network dynamics, Emergent property

Jae Il Joo (Biological Science / Computer Science)

Research Interests
All the cells are controlled by biological systems of genes and proteins. Unfortunately, the biological systems are nonlinear systems but the conventional biological methods have limitation to unravel the nonlinear systems. Systems biology can overcome the limitation of the conventional biology to analyze the nonlinear systems. So I want to study cancer biology and developmental biology, which are the most complex problems in biology, through systems biology.

Keywords : cancer biology, developmental biology, stem cell

So Yeong Jang (Electronic Engineering)

Research Interests
There are a lot of unsolved problems of brain with emergent properties. I think that there is a set of simple regulations in brain network for complex output that we cannot understand intuitively. I want to analyze the mechanism and reasoning of brain network dynamics through the network control theory.

Keywords : systems biology, network dynamics, network biology

Sea Choi (Cell Biology)

Research Interests
Cancer research encompasses studies on cell cycle regulation, apoptosis, and tumor initiation, progression as well as metastasis that are involved in different singling pathways, underpinning the efforts to evaluate new therapies and tools to treat patients with cancer. Tumorigenic and stem cells conceptually share a similarity that they are capable of proliferating extensively. I am particularly interested in elucidating the dialogue between the tumor cells and molecular basis of stem cell self-renewal which can contribute to cancer progression and possibly reversion. I also want to apply systems biology to unravel this complicated molecular interactions.

Keywords : cancer biology, stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, signaling pathways

Jeong-Ryeol Gong (Biomedical Science)

Research Interests
Cancer is basically a disease of uncontrolled cell division beyond the surveillance of immune cells. Thus, Immunological cancer reversion is the best anti-cancer therapeutic strategy. For this purpose, a network-based treatment strategy is established using high-throughput data including single-cell RNA seq data. If cancer cells can be returned to an immunologically vulnerable state, the cancer is expected to be removed by immune cells and cured naturally.

Keywords : Cancer systems biology, Immunology, Bioinformatics

Yunseong Kim (Bio and Brain Engineering)

Research Interests
The first goal of my research is to mapping or visualizing the cell states of cancer. Based on these maps, I want to control the cancer cell and lead them into apoptosis with targeted anti-cancer drugs. Furthermore, I hope to rewind the cancer cells into normal cells by modulating the signal transduction pathway.

Byunghyun Ban (Bio and Brain Engineering)

Research Interests
Artificial intelligence is to develop machines to exhibit intelligence. AI researchers define those machines as 'intelligent agents', which learn how to generate useful information from the given data. These days, most machine learning approaches struggles with various kinds of artificial neural networks, which are one of there most successful brain-inspired artificial intelligence model. I hope to build a strong AI which is trained by my own knowledge and experiences. To design stronger artificial intelligence, comprehension on what intelligence itself is should be the first step. Each of us carries the most powerful intelligent agent on the shoulder; my goal is to understand it, human brain, to accomplish powerful artificial intelligence. Systems biology will provide skills and knowledge to understand complexly tangled neuronal architectures.
