Professor Dong-Woo Cho’s team at POSTECH is engaged in the development of novel tissue and organ printing technology that can bridge that gap that currently exists between the supply and demand of tissues and organs for patients suffering from tissue loss or organ failure. This novel tissue printing technology could lead to the regeneration of healthy functional tissues or organs for patients, thus, eliminating the need for tissue grafts and mechanical devices. The POSETCH team made up of Falguni Pati, Jinah Jang, and Dong-Heon Ha, recently published their findings in an article entitle..
A research team comprised of Professor Taiho Park, Jongchul Lim, and Taewan Kim of the Department of Chemical Engineering, reported a novel way to solve both dye regeneration and electron transport problems simultaneously using a “ladder” concept. The paper was published in the December issue of Energy & Environmental Science. Next generation energy devices should be based on clean and sustainable solar energy. Among the conventional solar energy device, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) have lots of advantages with higher power conversion efficiency such as chip process, easy..
Professor Tae-Woo Lee's research team published in Advanced Materials Professor Tae-Woo Lee’s research team has developed technology for the high speed printing of microminiature and high integrated device electrodes that will work smoothly and efficiently in portable electronic devices. The research team, which consists of professor Tae-Woo Lee and doctoral student Yeongjun Lee of the Materials Science & Engineering department at POSTECH, published their findings in the Advanced Materials journal. Photolithography and electron-beam lithography are methods that are used to man..
Professor Doghoon Hyeon (Department of Mathematics) will receive the best paper award given by the Korean Mathematical Society (KMS) with Professor Sung Yeon Kim (Kangwon National University).KMS announced that they will have a Spring 2014 meeting for reading research papers fromApril24 to 26 at Gangneung-Wonju National University where Professor Hyeon will receive his award for best paper.Professor Hyeon published his paper inAnnals of Mathematics, a journal published by Princeton University, in 2013. His paper titled, “Log minimal model program for the moduli space curves: The first fl..
Using POSTECH Professor Chulhong Kim’s custom-built high-resolution photoacoustic imager, researchers were able to examine the combination of nanonaps and photoacoustic tomography illuminated inside the intestine of a mouse. (Credit: Chulhong Kim) Millions of people worldwide who suffer from digestive diseases may soon have a safer alternative to traditional radiological techniques when visiting the hospital for imaging of the gastrointestinal tract. Researchers from the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), the University at Buffalo, and University of Wisconsin&ndas..
Professor Sung H. Han (Department of Industrial and Management Engineering) is an authority in the field of ergonomics, an applied science that deals with the design of devices and systems in conjunction with the physical working conditions, capacities, and requirements of the user. Professor Han has conducted research on human-computer interaction,effectiveproduct design, and the evaluation of product and service experience to provide better value to users. He has played a vital role in the establishment of Asia’s first National Institute of Ergonomics and is the founder of ACED (Asian ..
Professor Sei Kwang Hahn and co-workers in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at POSTECH, and Professor Allan S. Hoffman at the University of Washington, have investigated various kinds of hydrogels developed for stem cell therapy as a regenerative medicine. Their work is published in the latest edition of Progress in Polymer Science (IF = 26.854), an international peer-reviewed scientific journal in the field of polymer science and engineering. The paper entitled “In situ-forming injectable hydrogels for regenerative medicine” describes advanced polymeric hydrogel..
Professor Suk Bong Hong(CE and School of Environmental Science and Engineering) and Hyung Ki Min(CE, Ph.D. candidate) succeeded in converting meta-xylene to para-xylene using zeolite catalyst based on gas chromatography-mass spectrometry-computer(GC-MS-CPU) and isotope exchange method. Para-xylene which is used to make polyester fibers, plastic bottles, and films is a basic petrochemical material made through isomerization of meta-xylene, whose mechanism has been merely a hypothesis. Unlike other technologies, this technology can now be realized ex hypothesi.The research team is receiving atte..
Professor Nam -Ki Lee (i-Bio and Physics) su- cceeded in find- ing the step-by-step processes of neurotransmitt- ers in the brain cells through the single molecule technique, which had previously been unknown. This principle allows for possibilities to understand the causes of brain cell damage when patients suffer from intractable cerebropathy such as dementia.Prof. Lee’s research team jointed with Prof. Yeon-kyun Shin (KIST) to discover the fact that synaptotagmin-1, which is protein in biological membrane, controlled fusion of cell membrane in process of releasing chemicals by gradati..
