We had time to share the direction of the IBS BIMAG with leading mathematical biology researchers and to receive feedback.
A year ago, we were in a Korean documentary about scientist life. There was a scene: we struggled to solve a problem. This work is recently published. Universally valid reduction of multiscale stochastic biochemical systems using simple non-elementary propensities.
Dr. Hyun Kim (Postdoctoral fellow) have joined our group from October 18, 2021.
Dr. Hyun Kim received his physics Ph.D. from Korea University. He has researched the network structure underlying the master circadian clock by using the combination of theory and optogenetic experiments.
Dr. De los Reyes Aurelio V A. (Senior researcher) and Dr. Bryan Hernandez (Postdoctoral fellow) have joined our group from October 1, 2021.
Dr. De los Reyes, Aurelio V A received his math Ph. D. from Karl-Franzens Universitaet Graz ( Austria) and has been an associate professor at University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD). He is the first recipient of the Dr. Concesa Milan-Baduel Professorial Chair in Mathematics awarded by UPD Institute of Mathematics. He has researched the mathematical models of cardiovascular-respiratory system, cancer, tuberculosis, and HIV.
Dr. Bryan S. Hernandez received his math Ph. D. from the University of the Philippines Diliman and has been an assistant professor at the same university. He is the recipient of the 2021 Outstanding Ph.D. Graduate Award of the Mathematical Society of the Philippines. He has researched on chemical reaction network theory and is also currently involved in modeling the transmission of COVID-19 in the Philippines.

The mathematics magazine, ‘Mathematics Donga’ published the interview of our group CI Jae Kyoung Kim, titled [IBS x Mathematics Donga] Mathematician revealing the secret of Biology, Professor Jae Kyoung Kim.
It is available via the link, and the entire article can be found by clicking ‘PDF 잡지원본보기’ on the website but only in Korean.
On June 18, 2021, Sookkyung Lim from the University of Cincinnati gave a talk at the IBS Biomedical Mathematics Seminar. The title of her talk was “Introduction to immersed boundary method for biofluids.” Moreover, she had passionate discussions with our group members!
We now have BIMAG mugs in our tea room 🙂
Please feel free to use them to have some coffee (with a newly purchased coffee beans)!
On May 26, 2021, Ramon Grima from the University of Edinburgh gave an online talk at the IBS Biomedical Mathematics Colloquium. The title of his talk was “Neural network aided approximation and parameter inference of stochastic models of gene expression.”
