Jin-Woo Kim photoJin-Woo Kim is a Director of Bio/Nano Technology Group and a Professor of Biological Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Nanoscience & Engineering at University of Arkansas. He is an Adjunct Professor of Electrical Engineering at Pohang University of Science & Technology (POSTECH). He received his first B.S. in Chemical Technology (currently Chemical & Biological Engineering) from Seoul National University, the second B.S. in Microbiology from University of Iowa, the M.S. in Biology from University of Wisconsin, and the Ph.D. in Biological Engineering from Texas A&M University. He was a Visiting Professor of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University and the Center for Functional Nanomaterials at Brookhaven National Laboratory. His research focus is in the area of Bio/Nano Technologyi.e.biologically inspired nanotechnology, which spans interdisciplinary fields of biological engineering, biomedical engineering, biology, chemistry, and nanotechnology. Learning from biological systems in nature, his research aims to develop more effective and efficient routes to “panoscale” (i.e., ‘any’ scale) system integration of multifunctional hierarchical structures for biomimetic advanced materials and devices. He has generated over 130 peer-reviewed publications, over 230 presentations with over 85 invited presentations, and 5 patents granted or pending. He received several teaching and research awards, holds guest editorships and journal editorial board memberships for several journals, including co-Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology, and has been ad-hoc reviewers for leading journals, including Science, PNAS, and Nature Nanotechnology. He held leadership positions for international societies, including Vice President for Conferences (2021-2022) and Vice President for Publications (2017-2019) of IEEE Nanotechnology Council, is a steering committee chair of IEEE-NANOMED, and has served as organizing committees for several international conferences, including general chairs (2015 and 2019), general co-chairs (2011 and 2017) and program chair (2010) of IEEE-NANOMED, general chair (2023) and general co-chair (2019) of IEEE-NANO, general chair (2020) of IEEE-NEMS, etc. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Medical & Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and IEEE Nanotechnology Distinguished Lecturer (2017-2018).
