Institute of Tissue Regeneration Enginnering (ITREN)
Jeongeun Hyun received her Ph.D. degree in Integrated Biological Science from Pusan National University in 2016.
She studied the role of microRNAs in transdifferentiation of hepatic stellate cells and therapeutic effect of microRNAs in liver fibrosis during Ph.D. course.
Following her graduation, she worked in Pusan National University as a postdoctoral researcher and a lecturer in Cell Biology. In 2017, she joined the Dr. Diehl’s laboratory at Duke University as a postdoctoral associate and studied the role of RNA-binding proteins in the control of cellular plasticity during adult liver regeneration and in clinically relevant liver diseases that have defects in regulating cell fate.
Dr. Hyun is currently an assistant professor at Institute of Tissue Regeneration Engineering (ITREN) since 2020.
Her primary research focuses are mechanobiological mechanisms underlying hepatic pathogenesis, 2) nanotherapies in liver diseases, and liver/multi-organ organoid.
