We at Molecular BioSystems are very pleased to announce our newest Associate Editor – Professor Seung Bum Park. Professor Park is an Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department at Seoul National University, and joined the team at Molecular BioSystems in May.
Seung Bum Park received his B.S. in chemistry and M.S. in organic chemistry at Yonsei University (Seoul, Korea). After one and half years of military service in the Korean Air Force, he started his graduate studies at Texas A&M University and received a Ph.D. in 2001 under the supervision of Prof. Robert F. Standaert. He was then appointed as a HHMI Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University (with Prof. Stuart L. Schreiber). In 2004, he started his independent career as an Assistant Professor, and was promoted to an Associate Professor with tenure in the Chemistry Department at Seoul National University in 2008. In 2009, he spent his sabbatical as a visiting Professor at the Scripps Research Institute, San Diego, USA (with Prof. Peter Schultz). His research interests range from chemical biology, diversity-oriented synthesis, combinatorial chemistry, and bioorganic/organic chemistry, to medicinal chemistry, target identification, and fluorescent bioprobes. He has published more than 120 scientific papers, 3 books and filed 25 patents so far.
