Ph.D., Assistant Professor
Dr. Moon-Suhn Ryu obtained both his Ph.D. and M.S. at the University of Florida. His Ph.D. dissertation project focused on identification of biomarker responses in humans under experimentally induced zinc depletion, while his M.S. thesis project concentrated on characterization of erythroid zinc transporters. He earned his B.S. in biotechnology at Yonsei University in Seoul, Korea.
Before coming to Minnesota, Dr. Ryu was a visiting fellow in the liver diseases branch of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. While at NIDDK, he focused on determination of the physiological roles of ferritin iron regulators, Pcbp1 and Ncoa4 in developing erythroid progenitor cells and live animals.
