Jungkyu Kim has a biomedical engineering background and is now pursuing Ph.D. in mechanical engineering at University of Utah . He is currently working on a project that involves the implementation of a microscale system for DNA extraction and amplification. This project use a nanoporous membrane that will be implemented in a microscale system, extract the DNA using the membrane, amplify the DNA using PCR or a similar technique, and monitor the reaction in real time using optics. All of these functions will be completed in one chamber and will be accomplished rapidly.
