Dr. Hyung Suk Yoo PhD, MSc
(He, Him, His)
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences
Faculty of Medicine
Dr. Yoo completed his Master of Science and Ph.D. in neuroscience at Carleton University. His area of expertise is in neurodegeneration, neural injury and repair, retina, retinal ganglion cells, optic nerve regeneration, and growth factor signalling pathways. Recently, for his Ph.D., Dr. Yoo investigated the molecular mechanisms of retinal ganglion cell survival and axon regeneration. If he could collaborate with other researchers, Dr. Yoo would work with bioengineers to develop tools for delivery of pro-regenerative and neuroprotective agents that could promote retina repair.
Dr. Yoo's hobbies are weightlifting and collecting vinyl.
