BIOANALYSIS &
STEROID ENDOCRINOLOGY

making a new beginning in 2017

Advanced analytical assays of steroid hormones
based on chromatography-mass spectrometry provide
the quantitative steroid signatures in various
physiological events.

We are looking for excellent graduate students as well as postdoc fellows.


  • ALTERED HAIR CHOLESTEROL METABOLITES IN COGNITIVE IMPAIRMENT Increased levels of hair 7β-hydroxycholesterol was observed in patients with both mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease which are also negatively correlated with MMSE scores. The 7β-hydroxylation of cholesterol might be associated with progression of neurodegenerative conditions. FIND OUT MORE > Article related
  • IS IT POSSIBLE TO ANALYZE STEROID HORMONES IN KOREA? Mass spectrometry-based metabolite profiling makes it possible to quantify 84 steroid hormones in various biological specimens (urine, blood, tissue and hair) to allow “quantitative steroid signatures” and it also helps to explain correlations between enzyme activities.

  • CONGRESS ON STEROID RESEARCH 2018 As with previous successful meetings in the series, the 4th Congress on Steroid Research will bring together international delegates to address state-of-the-art approaches in the molecular basis of steroid hormones. The program will reflect the interdisciplinary nature of steroid research, involving aspects of analytics, chemistry, biology, medicine, bioinformatics and drug discovery.
