Dr. Sung Il Kim joined the lab in September as a post-doctoral fellow. He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Seoul National University. He published ten peer-reviewed papers during his Ph.D training including four 1st-authored, most of which look into ubiquitin modification in plants. Kang lab members who participated in the interview unanimously found him as the best candidate among the candidate pool last year. We are very excited to have him in the lab. Welcome aboard!
