About Me

Human & Statistical Genetics PhD Student

Hi, I am Min, and I am currently a third year graduate student in Dr. Don Conrad lab at Washington University in St. Louis.

I was born in South Korea and came to United States about twelve years ago. I went to a small high school in North Jersey. I received my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Sciences from SUNY Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York. I am American Society of Clinical Pathology (ASCP) certified medical technologist.

I spent two years of undergraduate in Dr. Nancy Hollingsworth lab, developing a novel method to synchronize meiotic cells in yeast. I also spent one summer in Dr. Jason Mills lab at Washington University in St. Louis, identifying and characterizing a novel transcriptional factor for X-Box Binding Protein 1 (XBP1).

Now, I am interested in developing and applying single cell analysis framework to solve outstanding questions in male reproductive biology and improve diagnostic medicine in male infertility.

On my leisure time, I watch Japanese anime, Korean dramas, shows, and documentaries. I also enjoy doing arts and crafts. Recently, I have spent good amount of time on making nanoblocks. I occasionally practice yoga and attend InsanityX classes to feel less guilty about devouring sweets. I am a huge dessert fanatic. Not only I love visiting different dessert shops, I also love baking them to share with friends, family, and colleagues. Do you have a favorite dessert shop that you like to share? Drop me a line using contact menu above!

Conrad Lab @ WashU

Our lab is driven to answer important outstanding questions in human genetics using a diverse set of methods.
Specifically, we focus on intersecting population genetics and technology development to study reproductive biology and fitness.

Don Conrad

Principal Investigator
Don Conrad is a human geneticist who completed his PhD with Jonathan Pritchard at University of Chicago, and a post-doc with Matthew Hurles at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, before joining WashU as an assistant professor in 2011.

We are a group of scientists who enjoy solving problems both inside and outside of the lab!
