  • Profile

    Dr. Son is Associate Professor of Department of Biomedical Sciences, and Department of Legal Medicine, Korea University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.


    He completed his Ph.D. at Department of Biological Sciences, Seoul National University and obtained research fellowships at Department of Biological Sciences, Seoul National University, Korea and at Department of Clinical Sciences, University of Bristol, UK.


    Since he joined Korea University in 2011, Dr. Son has been interested in molecular bases of neuropsychiatric disorders such as bipolar disorder (BPD) and suicide. He has particularly focused on the issues how circadian molecular clock is integrated into key biological pathways responsible for such psychiatric illness with circadian dysfunctions. In this regard, he is also trying to develop novel small molecules to modulate the biological rhythms and to define their potential applications for clinical purpose.


    He has published over 80 peer reviewed manuscripts, and also serves as an editorial board member of several scientific journals. He is a key member of the Korean Chronobiology Research Group, and a regular member for the Korean Societies for Neuroscience, Endocrinology, Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, and Molecular & Cellular Biology.
