Bleaching-resistant super-resolution microscopy
Dr. Jiwoong Kwon published a paper on Nature Communications! We found reversible switching of UnaG, a fluorescent protein found in Eel, with noncovalent linkage to the chromophore that enabled single-molecule localization microscopy that resists photobleaching by continuously rebinding to a new ligand.
Undergraduate poster presentation
Hyejun and Mingi, presented posters in the KU Chemistry URP Workshop. Hyejun worked on combining expansion microscopy and localization microscopy and presented the same poster in the National Spring Meeting in Korean Chemical Society. Mingi laid out foundation for in situ proteomics, which is imaging-based high-throughput protein profiling based on single-molecule localization. Excellent job, ladies!
Doyeon published her first paper in JPCL
Label-free super-resolution optical microscopy is near! Doyeon Kim, graduate student in KU Chemistry, published her first paper in Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. Doyeon and her collaborators demonstrated that stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) can be efficiently depleted with another SRS process. Congratulations, Doyeon!
Finishing Undergraduate Interships
Two chemistry-major undergraduate students, Yugeoung Kim and Kamoonbee Lee, presented posters in the KU Chemistry URP Workshop. These two students worked on super-resolution label-free imaging during the fall semester 2017 as intern students. Excellent job, ladies!
A new researcher, Chan-Young, joined the group!
Chan-Young Lee joined the Shim group as a post-master researcher in the IBS center for Molecular Spectroscopy and Dynamics. She received master's degree in Biomedical Engineering in UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology). Welcome, Chan-young!!
Two new graduate students joined the group!
Minsu Kang and Heechang Kim have joined the group and the department of chemistry as PhD graduate students! Welcome, dudes!
Shim lab moved to Korea University
Prof. Sang-Hee Shim moved to the department of Chemistry in Korea University and joined the IBS Center for Molecular Spectroscopy and Dynamics (CMSD). CMSD (director, Minhaeng CHO) emphasizes developments of novel time- and space-resolved spectroscopy and imaging techniques and their applications to chemically reactive and biologically important systems.
Awarded a Grant from Samsung Science & Technology Foundation
Prof. Sang-Hee Shim’s research proposal (titled as “Minimal-label Super-reolved potical Imaging”) awarded a grant from Samsung Science & Technology Foundation. The foundation is aimed at discovering and supporting prominent scientists in basic science who are deemed Nobel-caliber scientists. Shim is one of the 14 recipients in 2015.
2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
The 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry is awarded for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. Congratulations to Eric Betzig, Stefan Hell, W.E.Moerner, and many others who contributed to the exponential growth of the field over the past 10 years!!
Paper published on Cell
Among millions of sperm racing for one egg, only a few sperm cells succeed to arrive at the right place and time for fertilization. What is the mechanism behind this extreme selection of one out of million? We unveiled a molecular weapon of winning sperms in an article published in CELL on the issue of May 8th (Cell, 157: 808-822 (2014)).
