Hanyang University Medical Center ophthalmology professor Kim Yoo-jeong was recently awarded the "Travel Grant" from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) that was held at the Vancouver Convention Center in Canada.

Professor Kim Yoo-jeong presented on the topic of "Analysis of the MicroRNA levels in tears in Sjögren’s syndrome patients" and was recognized for primally analyzing MicroRNAs that show difference solely in manifestation. 

According to the May 21st article from Health News, Professor Kim said, “MicroRNA manages the manifestation of genes that determine the formation of protein in cells, and it is actively being researched as a treatment for incurable diseases such as cancer, after the widespread recognition that it can effectively restrain target genes.” She went on to say, “I want to contribute to improving the symptoms of patients and the quality of life through deep research in discovering MicroRNA that can diagnose the unique Sjögren’s syndrome and target treatment.”
 
Professor Kim Yoo-jeong graduated from Hanyang University College of Medicine and worked as a corneal disease clinic instructor at Seoul Nat’l Univ. Hospital. She is actively participating as a regular member of the Korean Ophthalmological Society, the Korean External Eye Disease Society, the Korean Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, the Korea Dry Eye Society, and the Korean Contact Lens Study Society.
