Dr. Kyoungtae Kim is a professor at Missouri State University (MSU) in Springfield, MO. He received his Ph.D. in Biology at Florida State University and completed his post-doc at Washington University in St. Louis, MO, where he studied cell biology and physiology. His current research focuses on cellular trafficking and nanomaterial-based nanotoxicology. His work has been published in the following international peer-reviewed journals: Cells, International Journal of Molecular Sciences, European Polymer Journal, FEMS Yeast Research, Cell Biology International, Biology of the Cell, European Journal of Cell Biology, Genes, Nanomaterials, and Biomolecules. Overall, his research results were disseminated in 241 presentations at internal and external scientific meetings, including many invited and keynote presentations. It is noteworthy that he was invited to several international conferences to present the results of his research as a keynote speaker or main presenter. For example, at the sixteenth International Conference on the Science and Application of Nanotube held in Japan in 2015, he presented his results with the theme of "Carbon Nanomaterials Negatively Affect Cell Viability and Gene Expression". In 2018 two other topics "Membrane Trafficking" and "Quantum dot-mediated Cell Toxicity" were presented by him as a keynote speaker in Montreal, Canada. He also served as a conference session moderator at the American Society for Cell Biology and was invited to serve as the World Yeast Congress Organizing Committee and Worlds Yeast Congress Session Chair. In 2019, his research was presented at the German-American Science Slam held in St. Louis, MO with the title “What doesn't kill you makes you...develop acute health problems down the road”. In 2020, he was invited to give his research talk at the EFIGIE Talks held virtually in Brazil with the title “Study of Intracellular Traffics and Assessment of anticancer therapeutics and engineered nanoparticles on cells”.
