Tae Hoon Kim, Ph.D. received his BS degree in chemistry and his Ph.D. degree in pharmacology from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, Korea. He completed postdoctoral training at Baylor College of Medicine from 2008 to 2010 and then Research Associate at Michigan State University in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology Department from 2010 to 2013. He now is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology.
The focus of my research is investigating the molecular mechanisms regulating normal uterine physiology as well as molecular causes of uterine disease including endometriosis, adenomyosis, and endometrial cancer by using novel mouse animal model. I examined several signal transduction pathways that play pivotal roles in women disease and implantation. Specifically, using mice that had the gene knocked out in one allele in uterine cells, I showed that several genes were related to women’s diseases as well as implantation.
