I am Sungkweon. I started my lab in September 2021 (Ajou University, School of Medicine). I started uric acid research with serendipitous finding of asymptomatic hypouricemia during Phase 1 trial screening. The prevalence of hypouricemia in Korean is higher than European or African population. We’re trying to solve the background using genetic epidemiology, metabolomics, and population genetics.
I happened to be impressionistic connoisseur after visiting Renoir collection in Barnes Foundation Gallery, The Phillips Collection (D.C), and the Cone Collection at BMA. I also like classical music and skiing.
