Han Myung-hoon, a professor in the Department of Neurosurgery (Hanyang University Guri Hospital Neurosurgery) was awarded the ‘Den-Mei Brain Tumor Education Foundation’ award at the ‘2019 Asia Brain Tumor Society Symposium’ held in Taiwan on September 28th.

The title of this presentation was ‘LGR5 and downstream intracellular signaling proteins which play critical roles in the cell proliferation of neuroblastoma, meningioma, and pituitary adenoma.’ The contents of the presentation included the discovery in the connection between Leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein coupled receptor 5 (LGR5) and human neuroblastoma, intracranial meningioma, and pituitary tumors.

In regards to the new findings, Professor Han said, “The possibility that LGR5, which is a receptor protein related to stem cells, could have a connection with the production and proliferation of human neuroblastoma, intracranial meningioma, and pituitary tumors was confirmed.

Professor Han graduated from Hanyang University College of Medicine and acquired a master’s degree and Ph.D. at the corresponding graduate school. He is also actively engaged in societies, being a regular member of the Korean Society for Neurosurgery, a regular member of the Korean Brain Tumor Society, a regular member of the Korean Society for Neuro-Oncology, a regular member of the Korean society of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, and a regular member of the Korean Society of Endoscopic Neurosurgery.
