Global Research Lab (GRL) Program, led by Prof. Hae-Won Kim with Prof. Kam W. Leong in Columbia and Prof. Jonathan Knowles and Dr. Ivan Wall in University College London, is a world-leading integrated research on the cellular reprogramming with biomaterials and biomedical technology.

 

Korea government invests the GRL team about 500,000,000 KRW annum up to 6 years (from 2015’ to 2021’), and a matching of ~140,000 plus 480,000 USD annum for 6 years from Columbia and UCL also includes.

 

The global team aims to apply nano-biomedical engineering platforms to directly reprogram cells, with high efficiency, safety, and scalability, those applicable for the nerve and muscle repair and regeneration.
