Professor Yong Ju Yoon, Top 10 in Database Searches for the Pneumococcal Infection Category 

웹마스터 (webmaster) 2012/01/25 18:01:12
<미국 국립의학도서관 DB 검색 Top10에 선정된 윤용주 교수>

Medical School Professor Yong Ju Yoon’s thesis paper was selected as one of the Top 10 in the Pneuomoccocal Infection category for BioMedLib, an online search engine specialized in Biomedical Science and maintained by the National Library of Medicine(NLM) and National Institutes of Health. Prof. Yoon shares authorship with Karolinska Institute] Professor Hellstrom from Sweden on this joint research, which observed and provided evidence of the histological change in the fenestra rotunda and the inner year when the middle ear is injected with pneumococcus. This groundbreaking research was published as an SCI (Science Citation Index) paper.

Every year, the BioMedlib search engine selects exceptional research papers among millions of entries in the NLM database. Meanwhile, Prof. Yoon also was first to prove that ear wax contains anti-bacterial peptide hbD-1 and hbD-2(Acta Otolaryngol, 2008). Effectively, he proved that ear wax is necessary for the prevention of inner ear infections. Currently, Prof. Yoon is conducting a joint research project concerning the electrophysiological study of Atrial Natriuretic Peptide with the CBNU Physiology Department.
