Hyunjin Kim

In one word, I am a bioinformatician. Currently, I am a research associate in Ponder and Markowetz' group, and trying to discover new things using lung cancer data. During my PhD, I devised cancer classification algorithms using gene expression data and also proposed some computational algorithms to identify disease-associated genes and drugs. I have interests in development of data mining algorithms with biomedical data to produce clinically actionable information. I would like to identify causes and development processes of serious and rare diseases. My ultimate research goal is constructing a medical decision support system with diagnosis and prognosis of various diseases.
