[RESEARCH] Professor LEE Byeong Chun of the SNU Department of Veterinary Medicine and his team have succeeded in cloning a trans-genetic dog,"Tegon," that conditionally expresses green fluorescent protein (GFP) when fed a particular antibiotic named Doxycycline. This research is the first in the world to allow a genetic trait to appear not from birth but when needed. Since the 260 types of illnesses that may appear in a dog occur in a similar way to that of humans, the results are expected to be used in creating disease-models. The research was published as the cover article of the July 2011 issue of the international academic journal, Genesis.

[RESEARCH] Professor KIM Sun Kee of the SNU Department of Physics & Astronomy and his research on ?dark matter? were introduced in an article by Maeil Business Newspaper. Kim's research began in 2003 by installing dark matter detecting equipment 700 meters underground the Yangyang Pumped-Storage Powerplant, to find a certain type of dark matter called WIMP. Despite his position as a late starter, Professor Kim has become one of the leaders in the field of dark matter with continuous research and new world-class equipment. His recent work is expected to disprove the data and theory on dark matter signals that DAMA, an Italian research group, has claimed earlier.

[FIGURES] Seoul Economic Daily printed an article on the school connections of university hospital directors as part of its series"Korea's Personal Connections." In an investigation into 32 major university hospitals of Korea, it turned out that most of the directors of such hospitals were either SNU alumni (10 hospitals) or Yonsei University alumni (8 hospitals). The majority of these people had also graduated from Kyunggi High School, confirming that the 'KS Line,' originally a term describing graduates from Kyunggi and SNU in the political or business world, also exists in the medical world. Medical doctors from SNU were also shown to be dominant when it comes to plastic surgery clinics.
