[Academics]Professor Shin Hyun-goo Publishes a Research Paper on ‘Targeted Temperature Management for Post-Cardiac Arrest Patients’

▲ Professor Shin Hyun-goo Professor Shin Hyun-goo, and his team of professors from the Hanyang University Hospital, Guri branch, stated that they have successfully published a paper on targeted temperature management for post-cardiac arrest patients on the March edition of the ‘Resuscitation’ journal on March 4th. The research results were published under the title, “Efficacy of the cooling method for targeted temperature management in post-cardiac arrest patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis,” and his studies suggested that when implementing targeted temperature management treatment for patients who successfully recovered from a spontaneous circulation after cardiac arrest, the body surface cooling method and the blood vessel cooling method did not show much difference between the survival rate of the patients and other positive neurological outcomes. Professor Shin stated that, “It is still difficult to decide which method is superior when trying to undergo targeted temperature management, whether it is the body surface cooling method, or the blood vessel cooling method,” and that “the proper method must be chosen according to the patient’s medical conditions, and what is financially efficient for him/her.” He also added that there is a “need to an additional randomized controlled study in a large scale.” Meanwhile, Professor Shin Hyun-goo graduated from Hanyang University’s College of Medicine, and also received his doctoral degree from the same university. He is currently working as an assistant professor at the Department of Emergency Medicine in Hanyang University Hospital, Guri Branch. He is currently active in the medical field as a member of The Korean Society of Emergency Medicine and the Korean Council of EMS Physicians, is also an advanced cardiac life support instructor at the American Heart Association, an advanced resuscitation instructor of Korea at the Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitations and a specialized instructor for trauma treatment in Korea.

[HOT Issue][COVID-19] ‘Love in Deed and Truth’ into Practice Through Voluntary Fundraising

(source: Everytime) On March 1st, a post was uploaded on an anonymous university community app, also known as ‘Everytime’ with the title: ‘We are collecting donations from Hanyang University students for COVID-19 aid.’ This post was written by a student named Cho Sung-jae, who decided to raise funds to help those who are in need to fight the COVID-19 virus by emulating Hanyang University’s Motto, ‘Love in Deed and Truth.’ The organizers behind this fundraiser are students Cho Sung-jae (Department of Policy, Class of ’19), Kim Do-young (Department of Policy, Class of ’16), Shin Hyo-jung (Department of Policy, Class of ’17), and Park Eun-bin (Department of Policy ’19). The first round of fundraisers was supposed to be held from March 1st to March 8th, with the goal to raise two million won. However, due to the students’ keen interests and active donations, they were able to reach its goal of raising two million won after just two hours of uploading the post. A vote on how the donations would be done and to where the donations would be given were done through KakaoTalk’s Open Chatroom system, and the two million won that was collected was donated to the ‘Community Chest of Korea, Daegu Branch’ under the name ‘The Students of Hanyang University.’ (source: Everytime) For the second round of donations, the organizers expected to raise around eight million won by the 8th, but just like the first round of donations, around 10-million won was successfully raised in just a day of uploading the post about the second round of donations. By March 2nd, 8 P.M., a total of 1,0841,583 won was raised with 566 students who participated in the fundraiser. Because the donations are continuously being raised in a faster manner than anticipated, there isn’t a specific amount of money that has been set as the target goal for the third round of fundraisers, but the organizers plan to donate everything that has been given by the 9th. All fundraisers are given under the name, ‘The Students of Hanyang University’ and all matters concerning donations, such as where the donations would be given away, are done after careful negotiations through a KakaoTalk Open Chatroom where everyone is identified according to their real names. Students can send their donation money to this bank account: 3333-15-2756575, KakaoBank (Cho Sung-jae). Bank statements and a list of depositors can be checked on the Everytime app. Global News Team

[Special]Voices of Freshmen on the Delayed Curriculum

Due to the continuous spread of coronavirus in South Korea, most universities, including Hanyang University, have delayed the first day of classes for two weeks and substituted the following two weeks with online lectures. This unexpected change has generated substantial inconvenience for students, especially freshmen. Left to spend the confusing first weeks of university individually, what are their thoughts on the school’s management and the rapid changes in the 2020 curriculum? It is already the second week of March but the campus is still empty as a result of the delayed curriculum caused by coronavirus. How do you feel about the systematic management of the school? Jung Bo-sung (Department of Architectural Engineering, 1st year) felt the communication between the students and the school should be improved. He explained that as a freshman, without any orientation or entrance ceremony, there was a lot of trouble registering for classes on his own. On the other hand, Hwang Sung-bin (Department of Korean Language and Literature, 1st year) said she has been able to follow the school curriculum well, thanks to the department meeting and the orientation meeting organized by her seniors and colleagues. As guidance on university life is crucial during this time, many freshmen seemed to be on the lookout for their seniors' assistance, as well as information on applications such as Everytime or Campuspick. How do you feel about replacing offline classes with online classes? Jung Soo-bin (Department of Information Sociology, 1st year) expressed positive reaction towards the policy. She said the school has made a fair choice in its quick decision to delay the offline courses. Also, Jung said the timely execution of lectures should be prioritized over all else. On the contrary, Park Si-Un (Department of Chemistry, 1st year) voiced out his concern against the system. He opinionated that certain classes cannot be taken online. The lectures where experiments make up most of the curriculum need to take place offline, and as a student of a major where experiments constitute a large part of education himself, he is in doubt whether the school can offer an appropriate solution. All the freshmen, despite their differing opinions, agreed on their wishes to attend school as quickly as possible after the coronavirus outbreak has been contained. The spring campus of Hanyang University, still empty, awaits the arrival of new students. Lee Yoon-seo

[Academics]Professor Jang Jae-young Developed Thermoelectric Material with Possible Use for Energy Source for Wearable Electronics

Hanyang University Professor Jang Jae-young (36·Photo) of the Department of Energy Engineering and his team recently developed a stretchable organic thermoelectric material that has a self-healable characteristic. Thermoelectric material is a material that converts heat energy into electric energy using temperature difference, that has been so far using materials based on metal or ceramics. When the research outcome created by Professor Jang's team is commercialized, which was introduced on the cover of Advanced Functional Materials, one of the world's most renowned papers on materials academics, it will allow the wearable electronics to recharge the battery by only using the body temperature, expecting a great increase in its hours of usage. Professor Jang Jae-young Professor Jeong Yong-jin There have been active researches being done on high polymer-based thermoelectric materials, which has better flexibility than metal-based materials with difficulties on modifications. However, due to the drawback that an organic material with a soft property of matter can easily lose the characteristic of thermoelectricity when under a physical collision, researchers were having a hard time commercializing the results. Accordingly, to utilize the source throughout a wider area than the energy source of wearable devices, the need for the development of new organic thermoelement was raised, which has flexibility, elasticity and also can self-heal the cracks created through outside impacts. To solve this problem, Professor Jang's research team used functional organic material and provided material design and manufacturing process strategy at the same time, leading to the development of a material showing the best thermoelectricity. The team went through successful doping of conjugated polymer in a form of nano-wire and showed its thermoelectrical characteristic, while also embedding this to thermoplastic elastomer matrix and developing a thermoelectricity material with both a complex form of elasticity and self-healable characteristics. The developed material features great thermal conversion property on low-temperature and small temperature differences, keeping its stable self-healable ability throughout outside impacts such as scratches or cracks. The significance of the research lies in the fact that it has confirmed the possibility of utilization of organic high polymer-based thermoelectricity material as an energy source of wearable devices. Professor Jang mentioned that "this thermoelectricity material will be a great help to the development and commercialization of future electric materials such as electric skin and wearable smart devices," he also added, "the specific technology is also expected to be used throughout the next-generation energy harvesting related field." The research was conducted under the Ministry of Education(Basic Research Support Program-SGER) with support from the National Research Foundation of Korea, co-working with Professor Jeong Yong-jin of Korea National University of Transporation, School of Chemical and Materials Engineering. ▲ Result of self-healable and stretchable organic thermoelectric materials developed by Professor Jang Jae-young's team ▲ Cover of the world renowned paper on materials academics, Advanced Functional Materials <References> ■ Thesis Title: Self-Healable and Stretchable Organic Thermoelectric Materials: Electrically Percolated Polymer Nanowires Embedded in Thermoplastic Elastomer Matrix ■ Writer Information: Professor Jeong Yong-jin (1st writer, School of Chemical and Materials Engineering, Korea National University of Transportation), Jung Jae-min Doctor Candidate (Hanyang University), Suh Eui-hyun Doctor Candidate (Hanyang University), Doctor Yun Dong-jin (Samsung Advanced Institue of Technology), Oh Jong-gyu Doctor Candidate (Hanyang University), Professor Jang Jae-young (Communications Writer, Hanyang University) Global News Team
