    Research Interest: His interests in liver fibrosis research focuses on the use of intrahepatic administration of collagenase for reversal of liver fibrosis and this work was one of the earliest that established proof-of-principle of these potential therapeutic agents. His immunological interest lies with double-stranded RNA induced immune response and its potential application in anti-virus and/or anti-cancer immunotherapy.

    Kwang-Hyun Baek is a full professor of Department of Biomedical Science and a director of Cell & Gene Therapy Research Institute at CHA University in Korea. He received his Ph.D. from the department of Zoology and Genetics at Iowa State University in US in 1995 and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in the division of Genetics at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and in the department of Pediatric Oncology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School. He has been serving as an editorial board member, a regional editor, and an editor-in-chief of many international journals. Current research and clinical interests are in the molecular genetics of ubiquitination and deubiquitination systems relevant to various cancers and stem cell proliferation/differentiation. He first coined terms ubiquitomics and deubiquitomics in the field of the ubiquitin-proteasome system. In addition, he is interested in genomics and proteomics during cancer cell proliferation and apoptosis.

    Research Interest: Research areas of human physiology and pathophysiology. His research focuses on the clinical evaluation of new biomarkers and molecular mediators in several pathophysiological disease states, such as diabetes, atherosclerosis and cancer. His research interest also includes the development of quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSARs) and quantitative structure-property relationships (QSPRs) in the area of toxicology and pharmacology. Furthermore, his research interest lies in the assessment of physicochemical properties, such as lipophilicity, solubility and ionization of drugs, natural bioactive compounds and toxic chemicals in relation with their potential biological activity and toxicity endpoints, as well as their Absorption/Distribution/Metabolism/Excretion (ADME) parameters and their pharmacokinetic and toxicokinetic profiles
