KEYNOTE INVITED SPEAKERS
Professor Je-Yoel Cho, DVM, PhD
Department of Biochemistry, College of Veterinary Medicine, Seoul National University
Je-Yoel Cho, DVM, PhD is currently a professor in the Department of Biochemistry, College of Veterinary Medicine, Seoul National University. He was an assistant and associate professor at the Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea from 2003 to 2011. He has been working in proteomics research field since his postdoctoral researcher at the BIDMC genomics center in Harvard Medical School (2001-2003). He received his Ph.D. degree in Physiology and Cell Biology from the Ohio State University. He served as a secretary general of Korean Human Proteome Organization (KHUPO) (2012-2013) and is currently 10th President of KHUPO (2018-2019), a council member of HUPO (2017-2019) and AOHUPO (2014-2019). He is currently the PI of Chromosome #9 team in the international chromosome-based human proteome project (C-HPP). His current researches include the development of cancer biomarkers by glycoproteome and low molecular weight proteome analyses using LC-ms/ms-based mass spectrometry. One of the main approaches for the biomarker development is based on the comparative medicine between companion animals and humans in the similar environment. His lab validates various biomarkers by MRM technologies and further develops multiplexed point of care testing (POCT) kit useful for cancer diagnosis. Another research area is cardiovascular regeneration using stem cells combined with biomaterials. In this project, stem cells are modified to be functional by delivering the therapeutic genes into safe harbor site and protected by biocompatible materials.
