Welcome to our new Associate Editor: Mi Hee Lim

We would like to offer a very warm welcome to our new Dalton Transactions Associate Editor Professor Mi Hee Lim!

Mi Hee Lim, Dalton Transactions Royal Society of Chemistry

Mi Hee Lim received her BS in Chemistry from Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea, in 1999 and her MSc in 2001 under the direction of Professor Wonwoo Nam. In 2002, she moved to MIT where she obtained her PhD under the supervision of Professor Stephen J. Lippard. She then pursued her postdoctoral research in the laboratory of Professor Jacqueline K. Barton at Caltech. In 2008, she began her independent career as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Research Assistant Professor in the Life Sciences Institute at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA and in 2013, Mi Hee moved to the Ulsan National University of Science and Technology (UNIST), Ulsan, Korea, as an Associate Professor with tenure. In 2018, Mi Hee joined the Department of Chemistry at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Daejeon, Korea.

Her research interests lie in bioinorganic chemistry, especially focusing on identifying how metal-involved biological networks are linked to dementia, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, and establishing new directions for developing chemical reagents as tools, diagnostics, and therapeutics for such diseases. Mi Hee is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and has received numerous awards including the Society of Biological Inorganic Chemistry (SBIC) Early Career Award (2018), the Award for “30 Young Scientists of Korea” to Lead Basic Science Research for the Next 30 Years (2016), the Korean Chemical Society (KCS)-Wiley Young Scientist Award (2015), NSF CAREER Award (2013), the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship (2012). Mi Hee is on the Editorial Advisory board for Chemical Science, Chemical Communications, Chem, and Journal of Biological Inorganic Chemistry and is an Associate Editor for Dalton Transactions.



Mi Hee recently guest edited our collection on ‘The central role of the d-block metals in the periodic table’ with Catherine E. Housecroft and Christine M. Thomas.
