Jin Ryoun Kim is performing research in the creation of novel proteins for complex functionality such as the design of a protein sensor for detection of toxic molecules in neurodegenerative diseases and the development of a highly-stable enzyme that can be used in industry. His work has been recognized as significant by prestigious scientific societies and magazines.
He joined the faculty of Polytechnic Institute of NYU in 2006 in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
He earned a Bachelor of Science (with honors) and a Master of Science in Chemical Engineering from Seoul National University in 1997 and 1999, respectively and a PhD in Chemical and Biological Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004.
Kim has authored manyl journal articles and patents and is a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering, the American Chemical Society, the Protein Society, and the New York Academy of Sciences.
He is the recipient of the New Investigator Award from the Alzheimer’s Association (2009-2011), the Wechsler Award for Excellence (2009) and the Jacobs Excellence in Education Award (2013). He currently serves as an associate editor of the Korean Journal of Chemical Engineering.
