Doctoral research molecular biologist with practical, laboratory and
management experience in the areas of molecular genetics, molecular
immunology, and microbiology with research focus on the DNA repair pathways
and genomic instability.


August 2000 Ph.D. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
            Thesis title “Transcription and DNA repair in immunoglobulin gene
            somatic hypermutations”
            Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of
            Chicago, Chicago IL

June 1994    B.S. Chemistry
             University of Chicago, Chicago IL


Sept 2006 to present     Research Associate Senior
                   Duke University Medical Center
                   Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology

                   My advisor Dr. Sue Jinks-Robertson has relocated to Duke
                   University Medical Center in Sept 2006. After helping with
                   the move and set-up of the new lab at the new location, I am
                   continuing with my research in genomic instability in
                   Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Sept 2003~Sept 2006      Postdoctoral Fellow
                  Emory University
                  Department of Biology. Atlanta, GA
                  I am taking a molecular genetic approach to study
                  transcription-associated DNA mutagenesis and
                  recombination, using the model system Saccharomyces
                  cerevisiae. I am also studying the molecular basis of “At-
                  Risk” sequence motifs implicated in tumorigenesis using a
                  yeast model system.

                                                                  N.Kim CV 2007

                  Department of Pharmacology Pittsburgh, PA
                  I created recombinant expression and purification protocols
                  for a novel human DNA polymerase using human tumor cell
                  line HELA cells, Sf9 insect cell system, and E. coli bacterial
                  cell system.
