Yong-Sang KIM

Y.-S. Kim is a Professor at the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, SKKU, since 2013. He received his B.S. (1988), M.S. (1990), and Ph.D. (1994) in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University. Dr. Yong-Sang Kim was also a Professor at Myongji University from 1995 to 2013. He had a previous appointment as a Director at the Nano-Bio Research Center (2005-2013), at Myongji University; with the BK21 Development of Advanced Materials for Nanostructure Construction (2006-2013); and with the Nano Electronics and System Lab. (2006-2012), National Research Lab. (NRL). His research interests in the biosensor field include the design, fabrication, and characterization of thin film transistors for DNA, cancer cell and other biomolecule detection working with different organic materials, e.g., pentacene and graphene. Other biosensor topics in his research activities involve the electrochemical sensor, using modified electrodes for detection of DNA, proteins, enzymes and other biomolecules, and microfluidic system of CE-AD (Capillary Electrophoresis Amperometric Detection) for biochemistry applications. Dr. Yong-Sang Kim is currently the Director of the Nano Electronics and Microfluidic Sensor Laboratory at Sungkyunkwan University, where he oversees many research projects focused on oxide TFTs, transistor-based biosensor, organic solar cells, and solution-processing technologies for organic electronic devices.
