Brian (Byung-Kook) Ham
Dr. Ham’s research program is focused on characterizing the processes underlying vascular system-mediated systemic signaling. His major focus is on the roles played by mRNA, micro-RNA, signaling proteins, in the molecular regulation of macronutrient (N, Pi, and K) acquisition by the root system and utilization by the plant. The long-term goal fo his program is to elucidate the roles played by such long-distance signals in the integration of root and shoot growth, under optimal and nutrient-stress (mineral deficiency) conditions.
