Sep 29, 2020

SNU Professor LEE Yin-Won of the Department of Applied Biology and Chemistry has been nominated to become a fellow of the American Phytopathological Society.

Professor Lee, renowned world-wide for his research on filamentous fungi, was recognized for his excellent research achievements on fungus toxin biosynthesis and pathogenicity that Fusaria generate. His nomination was specifically for that contribution.

The Society was founded in 1908 to facilitate the exchange of academic information between phytopathologists. The Society announced on June 20 that it had nominated 9 new fellows. Professor LEE received his PhD. from the University of Minnesota in 1984, served as a professor at the University of Maryland and then came to SNU in 1986.

Currently he is holding the position of president of the Center for Fungal Pathogenesis, an Advanced Center of Excellence supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea. He is also an adjunct professor at Kansas State University.
