Scientific Interests

Dr. Junyoung Park is interested in mapping the metabolic interaction between cancer and immune cells. He advances quantitative, systems-level understanding of metabolism by integrating metabolomics and fluxomics. Using this knowledge and the principles of metabolic flux control, he aims to innovate therapeutic strategies against cancer.
