Assoc. Prof. Wooin Lee
After obtaining her BS and MS degrees from the College of Pharmacy, Seoul National University, she completed her PhD training at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, University at Buffalo, SUNY in the USA. She did my postdoctoral training at the Division of Clinical Pharmacology at Vanderbilt University. After that, she joined the research faculty working closely with clinical oncologists and the early drug development team at the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center (2004-2008). She was an Assistant and Associate Professor at the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, College of Pharmacy, University of Kentucky (2008-2014). In 2014, she moved back to South Korea and she is currently an Associate Professor at the College of Pharmacy, Seoul National University.
The goals of her research include i) to better understand the genetic and molecular bases for variable drug response and drug interactions with a focus on membrane transporters; ii) to develop novel anticancer drugs targeting the proteasomes and their delivery strategies to achieve desirable pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles; iii) to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenomics of anticancer drugs in early clinical trial settings and to assess the drug exposure and response in vivo using pharmacometric modeling and simulation.
