Meditox Donates 600 Million KRW Scholarship
On February 17, a Korean biopharmaceutical company Meditox, headed by Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Hyun-Ho Jeong, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with KAIST to establish the “Meditox Fellowship” and donated a total of 600 million Korean won (KRW) to the university to assist in promoting more scientists in the field of biology. Meditox CEO Hyun-Ho Jeong, KAIST President Steve Kang, Dean of Life Science and Bioengineering College Jung-Hoe Kim, and Dean of the Department of Biological Sciences Byung-Ha Oh participated in the agreement ceremony. According to the MOU, Meditox will donate 60,000,000 KRW over a ten year period, from which KAIST can draw on to grant scholarships for master’s and doctoral students. The “Meditox Fellowship” will support promising and enthusiastic students whose finances limit their studies. The first scholarship students for 2016 were: Kwang-Uk Min, In-suk Yeo, Sung-ryung- Lee, Si-on Lee, and Jung-hyun Kim. Meditox CEO Jeong, who graduated from KAIST’s Department of Biological Sciences, said, "I felt it was important to start the Meditox Fellowship at my alma mater to contribute to the cultivation of outstanding scientists in the field of biological sciences." He also said that he would plan to launch projects that aim to support not only those who receive the scholarship but also the development of Korea’s biological sciences in general.

KAIST Teams Up with Korean Universities for MOOCs
KAIST, Seoul National University (SNU), and the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) agreed to cooperate in the development of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) for Korean viewers. The agreement ceremony took place at the SNU campus on October 14, 2015. Under the agreement, professors from all three universities will jointly create and implement online courses on science and engineering by the summer of 2016. The MOOCs will largely consist of basic courses on physics, chemistry, life science, mechanical engineering, and material science. Anyone from a high school student to an adult who is interested in science can take these online courses. Some of the participating professors will be President Doh-Yeon Kim of POSTECH, Dean Seong-Keun Kim of Natural Sciences College at SNU, Dean Kun-Woo Lee of Engineering College at SNU, Dean Jung-Hoe Kim of Life Science and Bioengineering College at KAIST, Dean Do-Kyung Kim of Academic Affairs at KAIST, Dean Kun-Hong Lee of Engineering College at POSTECH, and Dean Joon-Won Park of Science College at POSTECH. President Steve Kang of KAIST said, “Many of Korea’s most distinguished professors in science and engineering will participate in the MOOCs. People, particularly young students aspiring to study science and technology at universities, should definitely take advantage of this opportunity.” In the picture from left to right is President Steve Kang of KAIST, President Nak-In Sung of Seoul National University, and President Doh-Yeon Kim of Pohang University of Science and Technology.
