[Faculty]Professor Han Myung-hoon Receives the ‘2019 Asia Brain Tumor Society Symposium’ Education Foundation Award

▲Professor Han Myung-hoon 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.

[Faculty]Professor Han Tae-hee selected as "Promising Researcher of the Year"

▲ Professor Han Tae-hee On August 14, Hanyang University announced that Han Tae-hee, a professor of Organic and Nano Engineering, was named the Emerging Investigator of 2019 by the Journal of Materials Chemistry A which is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. The Journal of Materials Chemistry A selects highly promising researchers among the world's up-and-coming researchers who have earned a PhD within the past 10 years. Han was chosen for his research on graphene fiber and ion transport in a nanochannel. The key to the research conducted by Professor Han is to turn graphene into nanochannel fiber and convert the difference of salt concentration into electricity. Han added graphene quantum dots to the process of making graphene fibers to increase the surface charge density of the fibers. As a result, he found that this surface property plays a very important role in generating power. These fibers have a high transmission capacity of ions where they can generate more than twice as much power, compared to using a different level of salt concentration. Han said, “The fiber manufactured with the technology, elaborated on in the paper, can be used in the manufacture of fiber-type ion separation membranes due to its high ion transport capability. He also added, “It can provide a new direction for the study of molten salt development, a type of renewable energy.” The result of the study "Graphene Quantum Dots/Graphene Fiber Nanochannels for Osmotic Power Generation" was published online in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on July 2, selected as a paper on the back cover. The research was conducted with support from the Ministry of Education's basic research project, the Ministry of Science, Technology, Information and Communication's project to nurture next-generation engineering researchers, and the development of nanomaterial original technology.

[Faculty]Professor Jeong Je-chang's Team Earns the Top-score Achievement From AI-based Video Processing International Competition

The team of Professor Jeong Je-chang of the Division of Electrical Engineering at Hanyang University achieved the highest-ranking performance at the NTIRE 2019 Academic Conference called the NTIRE 2019 Challenge on Real Image Denoising which was recently held in Long Beach, California, the U.S. The challenge was co-hosted by CVPR 2019, which is the world's foremost academic conference in the field of computer vision sponsored by Samsung Electronics, Amazon, Adobe, and NVDIA, and by NTIRE 2019, which is an academic comference on new technologies for the restoration of images and the enhancement of picture quality. The challenge was a competition that effectively removes the actual noise contained in natural images and restores the images. It was conducted on two tracks: noise removal of camera sensor output images and noise removal of standard color images. More than 200 researchers participated in each track and 15 teams, including South Korea, China, and the U.S., advanced to the final round. Jeong's team (researcher Park Beom-joon and Yoo Song-hyun) developed deep learning-based noise abatement technology and ranked second on each of the two tracks, earning the best overall score. "We want to contribute to enhancing the competitiveness of the local image industry by developing core technologies by applying deep learning not only to image compression, but also to such areas as video restoration, image quality improvement and ultra-high resolution conversion," said Jeong. Jeong is the inventor of 70 patents registered as international standards in the field of imaging, including UHD TV's image compression technology HEVC.

[Faculty]Professor Kim Yoo-jeong, Awarded the 'Travel Grant' from the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology

▲ Professor Kim Yoo-jeong 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.
