Mr YooChan Myung

BSc, Kangwon National University | MSc

Before joining the Baker Institute, I gained several years of experience in the field of biochemistry and bioinformatics. During my Master’s, I worked on the development of molecular mechanical force field for nitrotyrosine and nitrotryptophan which can lead to protein malfunctions and diseases. From 2011 to 2012, I took a position at Radiant Inc., and participated in research projects related with photoaging and malodour. Since 2013, I was able to continue computational biology works by taking a position of a molecular modelling consultant at Insilico Inc. In early 2017, I moved to Bioinformatics & Molecular Design Research Centre as a senior researcher of Natural Compound Analysis team and engaged in the development of metabolite prediction tool for high-resolution mass spectrometry (FT-ICR).

I joined David Ascher's lab (then at the University of Melbourne) in December 2017 and have been working on developing a computational platform for antibody and vaccine designs.
