Daeyoup Lee, PhD, Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, KAIST. Dr. Lee graduated from Department of Biological Sciences, KAIST, and began his research career investigating the regulatory mechanism of DNA replication by SWI/SNF ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complex using human papillomavirus as a model system. After he received his Ph.D. from KAIST in 1999, he moved to USA to study chromatin biology. After he finished his postdoc in Stowers Institute (advisor: Dr. Jerry L. Workman), he was appointed as an Assistant Professor at KAIST, in 2006. Dr. Lee investigates the epigenetic mechanisms involved in transcription elongation using yeast and mammalian systems. His current research also focuses on the link between epigenetic control mechanisms and transcription elongation.
