Kyo Bin Kang, PhD

Kyo Bin joined the Dorrestein's lab as a postdoc in March 2018. He received his Ph.D. in pharmacognosy (a.k.a. natural products chemistry) from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea (2016), mentored by Sang Hyun Sung. During his Ph.D. studies and first postdoc in Seoul, he worked on isolation and structural isolation of bioactive plant natural products, and metabolite profiling by LC-MS and NMR. His current research interest is a method development for high-throughput annotation of natural products using modern analytical platforms, especially tandem mass spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy, and genome-mining (collaboration with William Gerwick, Scripps Institute of Oceanography).
