Doo Yeon Kim is an associate professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. He received a Ph.D. from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in 1998. After finishing the post-doctoral training at Dr. Dora Koavcs's laboratory, he started his laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2009. Since then, he and his team have been studying the molecular mechanism of Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis and novel drug candidates using their 3D human cellular models. Dr. Kim received the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award, Partners Innovation Discovery Award, and The Roger Ackerman Memorial Grant Award for his contribution to developing 3D Alzheimer's disease in-a-dish models and his efforts on AD drug discovery.
