Professor Mihi Yang of the Department of Toxicology, College of Pharmacy, Sookmyung Women’s University, Seoul, South Korea, was a visiting scientist at HMRI from March 4-8, 2019. Professor Yang works with the Korean Center for Disease Control on oxidative stress markers of diseases and is interested in learning lipid analyses from HMRI’s scientists, after reading of Dr. Alfred Fonteh’s work from his publications. She was accompanied by her graduate student, Eunbee Kim, who expects to pursue doctoral studies in the United States. At HMRI, both researchers learned about sample preparation techniques such as extraction of lipids from fluids, hydrolysis, derivatization, and gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. It is expected that preliminary data obtained from this collaboration will lead to funding opportunities from several lending institutions.
