Dr Sangjin Yoo

Dr Sangjin Yoo completed his PhD in bio and brain engineering at KAIST in the South Korea, and this PhD research included development of photothermal stimulation technique for reversibly suppress the neural activity. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Prof. Mikhail G. Shapiro in Division of Chemistry and Chemical engineering at Caltech. His current research is focused on investing the mechanisms of ultrasonic neuromodulation and developing sonogenetics for non-invasive and safe control of neural activity. Alongside his research at Caltech, Dr Yoo is a selected investigator in NARSAD program aimed at providing key guidelines for human applications.

Dr Sangjin Yoo joins the programme for the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2020, and will be giving a talk entitled Biomolecular mechanisms of ultrasonic neuromodulation.
