다행히도 코비드19 백신에 초록불이 켜졌고, 치료제 개발에도 많은 좋은 뉴스들이 나오고 있으니, 앞으로는 더욱 밝은 내용의 뉴스들을 듣길 기대하며 2021년을 준비하는 마음입니다. 오랜 펜더믹 상황에 너무 마음과 몸이 지치셨겠지만, 조금 더 힘을 내어 우리 모두 건강하게 잘 이겨내길 진심으로 바랍니다.  

저희 카팔은 오는 12월 29일 (화요일 미국동부시간 오후 8시,서부 오후 5시, 한국 12/30일 오전 10시 )에  제 5 회 카팔 온에어 웨비나를 개최합니다.

Sung Joo Lee, Ph.D.
CEO at Orum Therapeutics

Orum Therapeutics is a private biotech company located in Daejeon, Korea, and Cambridge, Massachusetts. We are developing a novel class of therapeutic antibodies to bring new medicines to patients with unmet medical needs. Orum (오름) means ‘ascent’ in Korean, and it represents to us the idea of climbing or moving upwards. In 2016, we were founded with the goal of discovering the antibodies against undruggable targets. We named our company Orum, because we believe that inhibiting undruggable targets with antibody drugs is akin to climbing K2, one of the most dangerous mountains in the world. K2 was insurmountable for nearly 100 years, until its first climbers used oxygen tanks in 1952. We believe Orum possesses the ‘oxygen tank,’ but requires further perseverance, determination and teamwork in order to complete our ascent.
Our vision is a world where no patient suffers from diseases caused by undruggable targets.

Sangyeul Han, Ph.D.
CEO/Co-founder, INGENIA Therapeutics Inc., USA

Sangyeul Han is currently the Co-Founder & CEO at INGENIA Therapeutics Inc., a biotech startup, established to develop innovative therapeutic antibodies.

In 2002, he started his postdoctoral research at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School where he studied the pathological mechanisms of several tumor suppressor syndromes, including Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC), Neurofibromatosis (NF), and chordomas as a research fellow/instructor. In 2010, he then joined the Biotherapeutics lab at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology, South Korea, where he led a project for the development of therapeutic antibodies for multiple diseases. In 2016, he moved to Cell Signaling Technology, USA, where he led Antibody Technology group & Molecular Biology group. He is an author of 20+ publications in scientific journals and an inventor on multiple patents in the area of therapeutic antibody development.
