Professor Eunjoon Kim's team finds synapse-forming protein
Professor Eunjoon Kim’s team finds synapse-forming protein - discover a new protein ‘NGL’ that promotes the formation of neuronal synapses - can presume the cause of various brain disorders including schizophrenia - will be published at Nature Neuroscience Vol. 9 in September A new protein that promotes the formation of synapses in human brains was discovered by a Korean research team. The team led by Eunjoon Kim, Professor of Department of Biological Sciences and Head of Creative Research Group of Synapse Formation), announced that it had discovered a new fact that NGL protein promotes the formation of neuronal synapses and this fact would be published in Nature Neuroscience Vol. 9 on September 18. Professor Kim’s team discovered that a membrane protein named ‘NGL’ located at post synapse links with other membrane protein named netrin-G in pre synapse, acting as crosslink, and promotes the formation of a new synapse. ‘NGL’ is the second protein found to crosslink synapse, following neuoroligin. With the discovery of this new protein, the principle of synapse formation and the causes of various brain disorders can be presumed. In the human brain, about more than 100 billion neuron cells and about 10,000 synapses compose neural circuit. A synapse is the place where innervation occurs between neuron cells. The formation of synapse induces the formation of neural circuit, and neural circuit is deeply related with various brain disorders as well as normal development of brains or brain functions. “As netrin-G linked with NGL is related with schizonphrenia and neuoroligin and synapse crosslinking protein having a similar function with NGL is deeply related with mental retardation and autism, I think NGL is related with various brain disorders including schizophrenia.” <Explanation of attached photos> ■ Photo1: Experiment for confirming NGL’s ability to form synapse No. 1 Mix ordinary cell (green) revealing NGL at its surface and neuron cell. Axon grows toward NGL (ordinary cell) located in the middle of ten o’clock direction and meets NGL, where NGL induces the formation of pre synapse (red) in the contacting axon. Whether pre synapse has been formed can be told by the fluorescent dying (red) of pre synapse protein named Synapsin. - Figure a-b: formation of synapse by NGL - Figure c-d: transformed NGL losing synapse forming ability cannot form synapse ■ Photo 2: Experiment for confirming NGL’s ability to form synapse No. 2 When beads coated with NGL are scattered on neuron cell, the beads contact with the axon of the neuron cell (the beads are clearly visible at the phase differentiation image in the middle panel). At this time, NGL induces the formation of pre synapse (red) in the axon. Whether pre synapse has been formed can be told by the fluorescent dying (red) of pre synapse protein named SynPhy (panel a) or VGlut1 (panel b).

First collection of students for undergraduate courses 2007
If you want to be a global leader, come to KAIST! 640 students to be selected in the first collection KAIST is an institute of science and technology belonging to the Ministry of Science and Technology, not to the Ministry of Education. KAIST, having executed student selection without examination since 1992, selects students with great talent in science and mathematics by early admission, not by the scores of the nationwide college entrance examination, which is the prototype of on-demand collection executed by ordinary universities. As such, though similar to on-demand collection in fall semester by the other universities in its characteristics, KAIST’s first collection of students for undergraduate courses 2007 is considerably different in that the number of students to be selected is 640, 90% of its entrance quota (700 students). High school graduates and high school students to graduate in February 2007 are eligible for admission, and second year high school students also can apply for admission under the condition of specific examination. The process of the first collection is composed of two steps. The first step is the examination of submitted documents. A certified score of English by one of TEPS, TOEFL, and TOEIC must be submitted, and those students having no certified score must express their intention to take a special TEPS test through internet application. In the examination of submitted documents, in-depth examination on high school record, certified score of English, cover letter, teacher’s letter of recommendation, evidence on student’s excellence, etc. is carried out. The second step is an interview. Around 900 candidates, 1.4 times larger than the number of final selectors (640 students), are selected as candidates for interview through the first step (examination of submitted documents), and among them, top 70% of the candidates (around 450 candidates) will take an interview for personality examination and the other 30% will take an interview for specialty examination. The interview for specialty examination will test on two subjects - Mathematics and Science. Mathematics is a compulsory subject and Science is tested by one subject among Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. The preparation time for each subject is 30 minutes and the interview time is 20 minutes. The coverage of the interview for specialty examination is Math I, II, and infinitesimal calculus for Mathematics, and Science I and II for Science with priority given to the 7th step of education. <Interview with Dongsu Kwon, Manager of KAIST Admission Team> Q> What do you think of the features of KAIST entrance exam? A> A fact that students do not have to make a separate preparation for the admission to KAIST. Just studying what they are interested in and exhibiting the consequence itself will do. It is possible to tell those students who’ve studied with interests with mere documents and interview. KAIST entrance exam is a designed system to carry out regular education faithfully, not a system to select a small number of well-prepared students. Q> What type of students does KAIST want? A> Students having evident fields of interest, students having authentic passion, and students studying voluntarily. I think KAIST is the best place for students who have passion in Math and Science and eager to be a great scholar to pave their way for the further during the college period of four years. Q> The degree of importance of the certified score of English (one of TEPS, TOEFL, and TOEIC) for the admission to KAIST A> In KAIST, many classes use English textbooks, therefore, students are required to possess specific level of English abilities. However, since English can be improved in the campus, English score is not an absolute criterion and can be supplemented by other merits of candidates. However, it’s evident that candidates having high English score take priority in the exam. Q> Is it true that the number of graduates of non-science high school is increasing? A> Their rate hits about 30%. This results from considerably improved level of graduates from non-science high school, compared to their previous. Particularly, as KAIST has been widely known through TV drama and so on, a great number of top-class students from non-science high school apply for KAIST. These factors are considered to raise the current rate of graduates from non-science high school in KAIST, and there is no disparity in examination between graduates from science high school and non-science high school.

KAIST president R. Laughlin speaks during a news conference
KAIST president Robert Laughlin speaks during a news conference at the Government Complex in Kwachon, south of Seoul, Tuesday. / Korea Times 2005-02-01 THE KOREA TIMES By Kim Tae-gyuStaff Reporter Robert Laughlin, president of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), takes a step backward from his hardline push for KAIST reform in the face of strong opposition. The 1998 Nobel laureate in physics, who took the helm of the nation’s top technology university last July, made the point Tuesday at a press conference at the Kwachon Government Complex in southern Seoul. ``Privatization of KAIST is not on the table. We are only discussing securing money for the advancement of KAIST as a world-class institution,’’ the 54-year-old president said. Laughlin also denied the swirling suspicions that he plans to transform KAIST to a general-purpose, undergraduate-focused college from the current research-oriented graduate school. ``The issue we are discussing is moving the business model of KAIST toward the one used by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, not changing KAIST’s structure,’’ he said. This is a retreat from his original plan to fundamentally overhaul the state-funded KAIST to a market-oriented institute by several aggressive measures. In a new investment strategy for KAIST in December, roughly five months after his tenure began, Laughlin said KAIST is trapped in a funding squeeze from which there appears to be no exit. He then suggested revamping its traditional emphasis on graduate education because this type of system has come to be out of tune with the market. He even proposed expanding the enrollment of KAIST to 20,000 from the current total of 7,500 and charging tuition fees of 3 million won per semester from the current fee of under 850,000 won. The surprise reform plan created a backlash from KAIST faculty, students and government officials, who regarded the scheme as a privatization attempt. In the process, professor Park O-ok, dean of the school’s planning office, resigned from his position in early December and asked Laughlin to abandon the reform. In response, Laughlin said the miscommunication resulted from the secret process of KAIST reform discussion. He expected policy announcement in early March to clear up misconceptions. Regarding Park’s protests, he said: ``I had a personality problem with him but that has now been fixed.’’ Yesterday, Laughlin appointed Chang Soon-heung, professor in the Department of Nuclear and Quantum Engineering, to fill Park’s position. firstname.lastname@example.org
KAIST Develops Thinking, Feeling Human-Like Robot
By Kim Tae-gyu / Staff ReporterTHE KOREA TIMES 2005.1.31(page 1) South Korean scientists created the world"s first artificial species, a software robot with ``genes"" and ``chromosomes."" Kim Jong-hwan, professor at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, said Sunday his team had developed a robot with 14 chromosomes, which gives the machine a ``personality."" ``This robot is a software-based one, sometimes called a sobot. It has a unique synthetic character determined by its specific combination of 14 chromosomes,"" the 47-year-old Kim said. When Kim"s team gave a stimulus to the chromosome-equipped sobots, they showed totally different responses even under the same environment due to their distinctive personalities. Several cognitive sensors enable the prototype models to identify 47 differing outside stimuli. The virtual robots also have 77 behavior patterns. ``Because a sobot is basically a software system, it can easily travel to other robots and multiply. In the middle of such processes, it can evolve through crossover and mutation,"" Kim said. With the development of associated technologies, Kim expected the number of chromosomes would be augmented as sobots evolve to a more sophisticated species in the future. The capacity to load large volumes of data is related to the evolution of sobots. Currently, 14 chromosomes consist of roughly 2,000 bytes of data. The effort to incorporate the sobot into a platform, robot hardware, is now underway and Kim"s team looks to unveil the new-concept species as soon as next month. ``Diverse behavior patterns driven by sobots" specific personalities will be precisely translated into action just like the soul rules the body,"" Kim said. Kim did not think the robotic evolution would lead to the human race being threatened; the concept of the recent blockbuster ``I, Robot."" ``If we design the chromosomes safely, the self-reproducing robot will not post a threat back to us,"" Kim said. Kim first revealed the robotic breakthrough at a keynote speech of the International Conference on Autonomous Robots and Agents, held in New Zealand last December. Kim is also known as pioneer in the field of robot football and has headed the Federation of International Robot-soccer Association (FIRA) since its foundation in 1999. email@example.com
