Biography

Dr. Kim is an Assistant professor of Developmental Neuroscience in the Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. He received his postdoctoral training studying neural development with Dr. William Snider at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The goal of Dr. Kim's research is to understand how the developing brain forms complex yet specific neural circuits. Abnormal neural circuit formation is associated with many neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diseases including autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation, and schizophrenia. Thus identifying molecules and signaling mechanisms of neural circuits may lead to a better understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurodevelopmental disorders affecting cognition and behavior. Dr. Kim is interested in glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) signaling. Formation of neural circuits depends on the generation, positioning, and differentiation of many types of neurons. Recent evidence suggests that GSK-3 and its upstream/downstream regulators have key roles in neural development, including neural stem cell renewal, neurogenesis and neuronal differentiation. Furthermore, changes in GSK-3 activity are associated with neurodevelopmental and psychiatric diseases. GSK-3 signaling involves genes associated with these disorders, such as DISC1, Neuregulin 1, PTEN, serotonin, TSC1/2, and APC. Thus determination of the roles for GSK-3 in neural stem cell regulation and neuronal differentiation could translate into the creation of potential therapeutic benefits for neurological diseases. To delineate mechanisms of brain development, we use a combination of approaches including mouse genetics, in-utero embryonic manipulation, ex vivo preparations, in-vitro cellular/molecular techniques and high resolution laser scanning microscopy.Done his PhD, Neuroscience, State University of New York at Buffalo, Buffalo, NY in 2004 and MS, Molecular Biology, Korea University, Seoul, Korea in 1998 and BS, Biology, Korea University, Seoul, Korea in 1996.
