Gyungah Jun

Biography:

Dr. Gyungah Jun earned her Ph.D. in Genetic Epidemiology from Case Western Reserve University in 2008. She got two Masters in Microbiology/Immunology at Seoul National University in Korea and Computer and Information Science at Cleveland State University in US. She was appointed as an Assistant Professor at Biomedical Genetics Section, Department of Medicine, Boston University School of Medicine in 2009, where she currently holds an Adjunct Faculty position at Boston. She is now a Director and Head of Neurogenetics and Integrated Genomics, Andover Innovative Medicines Institute, Eisai Inc., a R&D unit for neurology and oncology in the US (since August, 2015 to date). She is responsible to develop novel therapeutic concepts driven by human genetics data and enabling the discovery and development of biomarkers and patient stratification markers for neurological R&D projects including Alzheimer’s disease. She continues on scientific research as an Adjunct Faculty at Boston University to identify genetic and genomics signatures using big data in consortia. She is an active member of many scientific advisory committees. She is the author of many papers published in internationally reputed journals. She has received many honors and awards including The American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) and The International Genetic Epidemiology Society (IGES).

Research Interests:

Her research focused on integrating large-scale clinical, genetic/genomics, and multi-omic data to identify novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In academic setting at BU, she is interested in understanding and developing therapeutic concepts for neurological and eye diseases using genome-wide association, whole genome/exome sequencing, and RNA sequencing data. Currently, she is leading multiple projects in US and international consortia for APOE, tau, and HLA/immune genes related translational studies. In industry setting at Eisai Inc, she primarily focuses on dementia R&D projects.
