Dr. Sun Hee Yim
Associate Professor, Metabolomics
The Yim lab research interests focus on better understanding the physiological state of an organism and its response to different types of challenges, including diet and environmental stimuli and their interactions with genetic factors. By defining the metabolite landscapes of various organs and determining how they change with age, Yim's lab strives to illuminate the role of the metabolome and its dynamic interactions with genetics in disease progression. By integrating multi-omics data (genome, transcriptome, and proteome), metabolites will be mapped into metabolic pathways, assessed for their clinical significance, and evaluated for therapeutic possibilities.
