Prof. Kim's department profile

  • Postdoc training, Biomedical Engineering,University of California at Davis, CA
  • Ph.D, Bioengineering, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA

Research Scientist / Post-docs

Bing Yu, MD. Ph.D.,Research Associate

Dr. Bing Yu joined lab in May 2013. He received postdoctoral training at the department of Orthopedic Surgery at Johns Hopkins University (2009-2013). His current research is focused on understanding molecular and cellular mechanism by which local environmental cues alter the polarization and activation of macrophage and its impact on tissue repair, in particular in models of skin wounding associated with chronic inflammation and bacterial biofilm infection.

Graduate students

Layla Almutairi, Ph.D candidate in School of Biomedical Sciences

Layla joined our laboratory in March 2015. She is a biomedical sciences PhD candidate at Kent State University. Her research is focused on understanding the molecular and cellular mechanism of magnetic nanoparticles hyperthermia for bacteria biofilms infection alone, and the combination treatment with antibiotic to enhance the antibiotic susceptibility, and the impact of this novel treatment in skin wound infection. She has a B.S in Biology and MSc in Cellular and Histology (anatomy). She is pursuing Ph.D degree in School of Biomedical Sciences at Kent State.

Jess Krieger, Ph.D candidate in School of Biomedical Sciences

Jess joined our laboratory in February 2017. Jess is a biomedical sciences PhD candidate at Kent State University. She uses a skeletal muscle tissue engineering strategy to culture pork, with major focuses on muscle fiber formation, vascularization, and bioreactor design for scale up of cultured meat production. Her other major research focus is growing skin for regenerative medicine applications. She was awarded a fellowship with New Harvest to complete her research in the summer of 2017. She has a B.S. in biology and a B.A. in psychology.

Eric Dyne, Ph.D candidate in School of Biomedical Sciences

Eric has studied neurodegeneration since the beginning of his Ph.D. program after finishing his Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences at Kent State University. The focus of his research is to further our understanding of neuroinflammation and autophagy in Alzheimer's disease, especially emphasizing the potential role of GPNMB in microglial cells in response to beta-amyloid plaques.
