Hee kyung Go

Post-master Researcher

  • Research interests :  Nanogel, Photobiomodulation, Spinal cord injury, Neural Stem Cells, Behavior test

  • My main concern is spinal cord recovery using various therapies after spinal cord injury. I am currently researching molecules and cells related to spinal cord repair, nanogels and photobiomodulation related to animal experiments. Also, I'm working on behavioral experiments on cognitive function.

Hyung Soon Kim

Ph. D candidate

  • Research interests : CNS regeneration, spinal cord injury, ischemic stroke

  • I investigate repair of CNS after injury. My research focus is on the inflammatory responses that occurs in rodent for the enhanced regeneration. I currently apply ischemic stroke model as well to figure out immune responses in brain.

Yeo Jin Seo

Ph.D candidate

  • Research interests : Macrophage, Axonal regeneration, neuron-macrophage co-culture

  • A main interest is the role of macrophages in axonal regeneration. My study is to find molecular determinants of macrophages with a pro-regenerative phenotype for axon growth using neuron-macrophage co-culture model

  • Contact :


Ra Yul Wi

Ph.D student

  • Research interests : ischemic stroke, synaptosome, synaptic adhesion molecules, spine

  • My main interesting is ischemic stroke. I 'm researching synaptic remodeling after stroke. Also, I'm investigating synaptic adhesion molecules related to remodeling.

  • Contact :


Seung Ah Jee

Integrated PhD student

  • Research interests : Axonal regeneration, Macrophage

  • My main interest is the role of macrophages in Reagent-treated cells. I am currently looking into mechanism of macrophages and steps to learn various experiments using co-culture.

Integrated PhD student

  • Research interests: Ischemic stroke, Spinal cord injury, CNS regeneration, Neural stem cells

  • Contact :


Hyo Gyeong Seo

M.S candidate

  • Research interest: spinal cord injury, oncomodulin, axonal retraction

  • I am conducting research to determine whether oncomodulin promotes axon outgrowth and prevents axon retraction, and to determine where it acts on the axon.

  • Contactat :


Byeong Seong Jang


  • Research interests: central nervous system injury, spinal cord injury, neural stem cells.

  • My interest is the central nervous system injury. so, I'm studying about the central nervous system, and participating in research of spinal cord injury repair.

  • Contactat :


Hyo Sun An

Lab manager

  • I manage the financial supports on research grants, paper works, overall administrative duties including conference, business, personnel expenses and so forth.
