Microscale PCR for point-of-care diagnoses

Professor Nae Yoon Lee received her BE (1998) and ME (2000) from the Department of Environmental Engineering in Ewha Womans University in Korea, and PhD (2004) from the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology in the University of Tokyo in Japan. She worked as a postdoctoral fellow in Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and in Ewha Womans University in Korea from 2004 to 2006, and as a research professor in Ewha Womans University from 2006 to 2007. She is currently an associate professor in the Department of BioNano Technology in Gachon University in Korea. Her main research field is focused on developing Lab-on-a-Chip system for molecular diagnoses such as the construction of microscale polymerase chain reaction (PCR) device, and surface chemical modification strategy for device assembly and biomolecule immobilization for biosensor applications. She currently works on developing portable device for point-of-care testing. She published over 60 research articles mainly related with microdevice fabrication, and registered 20 patents in Korea. Currently she is serving as a committee member of Korean Biochip Society from 2014.
