The Cell and Gene Therapy Collaborative presents a special seminar:

Delivery Strategies for Targeted Gene Therapy

Faculty candidate:

Jayoung Kim, PhD

Assistant Professor

University of North Texas Health Science Center

Dr. Kim’s research focuses on achieving precision and personalization in gene therapy through innovative and rational optimization of nucleic acid delivery vectors. In particular, he is interested in coupling material science, modular engineering, high-throughput screening, machine learning, and clinical pathology to address disease-specific delivery barriers, such as ocular or neurological complications, as well as patient-specific delivery barriers, such as tumor’s genetic variability.

Dr. Kim earned his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University under mentorship from Dr. Jordan Green through works on engineering polymeric gene delivery vectors for efficient tissue penetration and cell-specific targeting. He then completed his postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University with Dr. Samir Mitragotri, where he investigated broader drug delivery platforms, including cell hitchhiking technology, to extend immune evasion property as well as target specificity for viral gene transfer.

Host: Beverly Davidson, PhD
