BioYunkyeong earned her PhD degree under the supervision of Dr Keun Il Kim at Sookmyung Women's University in Seoul, Republic of Korea in February 2022. Her research has been focused on the role of an epigenetic regulator in the pathogenesis of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) using a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obese mice model. In addition, she has been studying the crosstalk between endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and autophagy. She is currently finalising her PhD projects and will be joining in Dr Anna L. Gloyn's Lab (Translational Genomics of Diabetes Lab) as a postdoctoral researcher from August 2022. She will be involved in projects investigating molecular mechanisms for pancreatic islet-cell dysfunction in type 2 diabetes (T2D). Her research goal is to expand our knowledge about the molecular mechanisms of some metabolic diseases including T2D and explore therapeutic breakthrough.
