CI KIM Jae Kyoung
Dr. Kim is the Chief Investigator (CI) of the Biomedical Mathematics Group, established on February 2021. He is an associate professor in Dept. of Mathematical Sciences, KAIST and member of Young Korean Academy of Science and Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Applied & Intredisciplinary Mathematics at University of Michigan and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Mathematical Biosciences Institute at the Ohio State University.
BIMAG aims to carry out top-class research in the field of biomedical mathematics.
Living organisms are organized in multiple scales. A myriad of small molecules such as proteins form a complex and dynamic network of chemical reactions. Their spatiotemporal interactions regulate cell physiology (i.e. dynamics of the cell). Cells also communicate with each other to integrate themselves into tissues. Finally, various tissues arrange themselves into organs, and many organs compose an organism. We aim to develop mathematical toolboxes for investigating such multiscale systems of living organisms and apply them to improve our understanding for living systems.
