Chulhee Choi's Biography

Chulhee Choi, Professor and Chair, BioMedical Imaging Center

Chulhee Choi is Professor of Department of Bio and Brain Engineering and a chair of Optical Bioimaging Center at KAIST in South Korea. In addition, he is a scientific founder and CEO of Cellex Life Sciences Incorporated, a company dedicated for development of exosome-based novel therapeutics. His group has been studying cell signaling involved in cell death and proliferation in inflammatory conditions and various malignant cancers. Dr. Choi’s group has also focused on development of novel biomedical imaging tools such as dynamic ICG fluorescence imaging for deep tissue perfusion and novel optical technology using femtosecond ultrashort pulsed lasers for modulation of biological functions. Recently, his team has demonstrated that optogenetic engineering of exosome producing cells can be applied for intracellular delivery of bioactive proteins with therapeutic potentials. His group is now pursuing research and development for clinically available exosome-based therapeutics. He is a graduate of Yonsei University College of Medicine, where he received his MD and PhD.
