    Junhyong Kim, the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Endowed Professor of Biology at the University of Pennsylvania, is a theoretical biologist and genomicist who works at the interface of mathematical and computational biology and evolutionary biology with a focus on neuro-cell biology. He uses quantitative models, genomic experiments, and statistical analysis to ask evolutionary biology and cell biology questions. Dr. Kim was a professor at Yale Univeristy, a visiting fellow at the Newton Institute and Cambridge University, at the Institut des Hautes Etudes Scientifique, France, and at the CoMPLEX Institute at University College London. His awards include a Sloan Foundation Young Investigator Award in molecular evolution, two Yale Seessel Anonymous Awards for studies in biochemistry, a Yale Junior Faculty Award, a Yale Endowed Fellowship in the Biological Sciences for studies in systematic botany, a Yale Senior Faculty Award, a New England Bioscience Society Research Award, a John S. Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Ellison Medical Foundation Senior Scholar in Aging Award.
