It has been exciting to watch TMB laboratory growing over the past several months in 2016. Since TMB Lab opened at UNIST in February 2016, Seyong Kwon, a postdoc, who received his Ph.D. degree from KAIST joined the team in July, 2016, and has been taking a lead role in multiple research projects developing biomedical devices for disease theragnostics. During the first summer semester at UNIST, many undergraduate students had opportunities to be involved in research projects, gaining hands-on experiences in microfluidics and biomedical devices.

At the end of summer, Axel Guzman Cedillo, DVM, joined us as a visiting student from UNAM, Mexico. He brought his expertise in animal models to the team and made significant contributions to developing many animal models with infectious diseases and tissue infarction. More recently, a research staff scientist and two graduate students (due for admission) joined the team, making us even more productive.
In addition to this, we were awarded many inspiring research funds supporting our projects, from Korean government and Samsung Electronics. We also initiated interdisciplinary research collaborations with research groups at universities in Korea and a rising biochip start-up company, and hope to extend it to clinical studies and commercialization of items we develop in the near future. There is more to come..
