Keun Ryu, Ph.D. 2015

Keun is a postdoctoral fellow in the Kraus lab. Keun’s research interests are in the role of nuclear NAD+ signaling in the control of transcription.

He earned a B.Sc. degree from Seoul National University, Korea in 2009 and received his Ph.D. from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2017.
