Virtual Seminar – Hyejung Won, PhD – “Brain Disorders in 3D Genome”

September 4, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hyejung Won, PhD
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

About the Speaker: Hyejung Won is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Genetics and Neuroscience Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She received her B.S. and Ph.D. in Biology from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), where she conducted research revealing the underlying mechanism of neurodevelopmental conditions using genetically modified mice under the supervision of Dr. Eunjoon Kim. She then joined Dr. Dan Geschwind’s group at UCLA, where she established Hi-C, a genome-wide chromosome conformation capture technology, and generated chromatin interaction profiles from the developing and adult human brain. Her lab leverages the genomics approach to bridge the gap between genetic risk factors and neurobiological mechanisms by mapping genetic variants of unknown function to the genes that they regulate, and identifying how dysfunctional gene regulation contributes to disease pathogenesis. Hyejung is the recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, NIH Pathway to Independence Award and a NARSAD Young Investigator Award.
