[Research] Professor LEE Junho of SNU's School of Biological Sciences announced on November 14 that he has clarified the dispersal phenomenon at the unicellular organism level by studying C. elegance, a relatively simple form of multicellular organism. Living creatures do not remain in the same place but rather move around to find better environments to reside in. Charles Darwin detailed the dispersal of species in his book The Origin of Species. Professor Lee's work showed that neurons cause the dispersal phenomenon. The results of his research were published in the journal Nature Neuroscience on November 14.

[Interview] Professor SHIN Hi Taek of SNU Law School was interviewed by HanKook Economic Daily about the recent political controversies surrounding Investor State Dispute (ISD) in the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA). Shin served as co-chair of the ISD taskforce during the Roh Administration, and currently lectures on ISD. He emphasized that the conclusion drawn among the members of the ISD taskforce was to include ISD in the FTA but to carefully negotiate the clauses related to investor protection. He also added that even if we were to delete the ISD clauses, there would hardly be any practical benefits from it.
