Dr. Young Kim is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University. Dr. Kim earned his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Hanyang University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering and an M.S. in Clinical Investigation from Northwestern University. Dr. Kim's research interests are in understanding light propagation in biological tissue, developing advanced biophotonics techniques for the quantification of physiological conditions and diseases such as cancer, and further translating these techniques to clinical settings and epidemiological studies. In particular, he is developing novel tissue spectroscopy/imaging techniques for early cancer detection, for monitoring efficacy of chemotherapy, and for surgical resection guidance.
