Professor Sangmin Jeon (CE) and Jinmyoung Joo (Post Doc.) have developed the technology that diagnoses cancer by using micro-oscillators made of photo- catalytic silicon and nanoparticle on the inside and magnetic material on the outside.
Prof. Jeon stated, “This technology is expected to be more effective and eco- nomical than existing measuring techniques because it shortens diagnostic time by measuring infinitesimal proteins related to cancer. It is why this technique receives spotlight from academia.”
In commemoration of its 20th anniversary in 2006, POSTECH declared "POSTECH Vision 2020" to show its strong determination to become a world class university. "
POSTECH Vision 2020" states that POSTECH's goals as a university are: 1) to train and educate creative scientists and engineers with global leadership
