  • Jeong received a Just-In-Time funding from UIC Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences [1] to study CYP2D6 induction during pregnancy. (Jan 2012)
  • Kwihye Koh won the 3rd place in postdoctoral poster competition at the International Society of Studies of Xenobiotics Annual Meeting. Her poster was entitled "17β-Estradiol (E2) enhances cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2B6 expression via cooperative actions of estrogen receptor (ER) and constitutive androstane receptor (CAR)." Congratulations! (October 2011)
  • A collaborate R21 project entitled “Comprehensive studies of novel SNPs affecting Warfarin dose in African Americans” was funded by NHLBI. Jeong lab will characterize functional significance of the identified genetic variations. Dr. Minoli Perera at University of Chicago is the principal investigator of the grant. Other collaborator includes Dr. Larisa Cavallari. (July 2011)
  • Jeong received an R01 grant from NICHD for a project entitled "Altered drug metabolism in pregnancy." (April 2011) [2]
  • A collaborative contract with Dr. Michael Johnson in the Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology received a ~$14 million funding from Department of Defense. Jeong lab will perform preclinical characterization for potential antibiotic agents with activity against both Gram-positive (B. anthracis) and Gram-negative (F. tularensis and Y. pestis) CDC Category A bacterial pathogens (February 2011).

  • A collaborative project with Dr Michael Johnson in the Center for Pharmaceutical Biotechnology received an R56 one-year bridge funding. Jeong lab will perform preclinical characterization of lead compounds for development of anti-SARS agents. SARS virus was responsible for the 2002 outbreak that produced more than 8,400 confirmed infections with more than 800 reported deaths worldwide and enormous corollary economic damage. (August 2010)
  • A collaborative project entitled “Functional and clinical significance of the CYP2C9*8 allele” was funded by American Heart Association. Dr. Larisa Cavallari is the principal investigator of the grant. (July 2010)
