Personal profile


Doctor Seonghee Jung graduated from the University of Sydney before completing her Ph.D. in 2020 at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) in the Republic of Korea. Seonghee worked as a postdoctoral fellow at DGIST where her work focused on investigating the pathogenic mechanisms of stress-induced brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. She demonstrated for the first time that chronic restraint stress can lead to cognitive deficits through autophagic death of neural stem cells in the hippocampus. In May 2021 Seonghee joined the Dementia Research Centre as a postdoctoral research fellow to explore the functional role of long non-coding RNAs in the brain using genetically modified mice.

Research interests

Seonghee’s research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of brain diseases, thereby contributing to the therapeutic and diagnostic development of new treatments.
