Development of Single Cell Analysis Framework
Characterization of Germ Cell Defects in Spermatogenesis
“Deep-Diagnosis” of Male Infertility
Allelic Imbalance in Male Germ Cells
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!
