Dr. Sung Joo Kim


Sung Joo Kim is a professor of surgery in Samsung Medical Center. After receiving his medical degree at the Catholic University School of Medicine, Dr. Kim completed his clinical training at the University of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Emory. Now he is a director of organ transplantation center, sarcoma center and animal research center in SMC. He supervises medical students, residents, and postdoctoral fellows as well as frequently delivers presentations on topics involving transplantation science and the management of transplantation patients.

His current research interests are in improving cell and organ transplantation relate to immunological events. Most of all, tolerance induction offer hope for graft survival in transplantation minimizing disadvantage of immunosuppressant. The other hands, autoimmune disease and diabetes are also related to immunological complication in patients. Understanding the immunologic mechanisms between transplant and recipient should lead to ways to re-establish transplantation and autoimmune disease by combining the tools of molecular biotechnology and stem cell biology. Furthermore, the group plans to develop a translational knowledge of the transplantation that render them basis for the application into clinic using non-human primate and humanized mouse modeling. This is the basis for generating powerful tools that could enhance the graft survival after transplant and eventually extend to the treatment of patients who have organ problems.
