Kyobum  Kim, Ph.D.

Post-Doctoral Fellow

Email: sallidal [at] gmail.com

        Dr. Kyobum Kim completed a B.S. in chemical engineering at Seoul National University in Korea (2005, cum laude graduate), and Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park (2010). Dr. Kim joined Dr. Mikos lab in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University in Sep 2010 as a postdocrotal research associate.

          Dr. Kim's Ph.D. works under the supervision of Dr. John P. Fisher (Fischell Department of Bioengineering, University of Maryland) focused on the investigation of augmented osteogenic signal expression of rat bone marrow stromal cells in synthetic 3D macroporous poly(propylene fumarate) composite scaffolds for craniofacial bone tissue engineering. Currently, his research is about a biphasic composite hydrogel system to deliver therapeutic growth factors and progenitor cell population for osteochondral tissue regeneration. As of Apr 2012, , Dr. Kim completed 11 publications, submitted one additional publication, participated in 28 conference presentations, and co-authored as 2 patent applications.
