Suh, Jaehong, PhD

Biography
Affiliations

Dr. Jaehong Suh studies the genetic and molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative disorders, with the aim of identifying novel therapeutic targets and developing effective treatments for patients. Suh was involved in the identification of novel mutations from late-onset AD families in the prodomain of ADAM10, a major a-secretase that cleaves B-amyloid (AB region of amyloid precursor protein (APP).

Kim, Doo Yeon, PhD

Biography
Affiliations

Doo Yeon Kim studies pathogenic mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using both cellular and animal models. He and his team developed a three-dimensional (3D) human neural cell culture model of AD, which recapitulated key aspects of AD pathology including β-amyloid aggregation and β-amyloid-driven tau pathology. Dr. Kim’s lab also studies how Alzheimer’s beta-secretase, BACE1, regulates synaptic and axonal ion channel trafficking using cellular and mouse models.
