Wonhyeuk (Won) Jung


Won joined the Loo lab in the Fall of 2017. He received his B.S. in Korea University in Seoul, Korea. He received his M.S. in biochemistry in USC. During his master's program, he researched about Prox1 gene expression for lymphangiogenesis and generation of a mouse model. The thesis for his research can be accessed here in USC digital library: http://digitallibrary.usc.edu/cdm/ref/collection/p15799coll40/id/262003

His research interested shifted to structural biology, specifically structural biology of membrane proteins, and was able to find a relevant project in Loo lab at UCLA. His main project in Loo lab involves developing optimal conditions for native mass spectrometry of membrane proteins such as cannabinoid receptor 2.
