About this team member

Kyung-Hoon received his B.S. with honors, M.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, University of Nebraska at Lincoln and University of Kansas at Lawrence, respectively. While in the Banaszak Holl lab he carried out molecular dynamics simulations on collagen model peptides to understand the severity of osteogenesis imperfecta.  His 2011 publication on the collagen structure of Osteogenesis Imperfecta was featured as the cover article in Biopolymers. Kyung-hoon is currently a staff scientist at Mayaterials.
