Dr. Jungsan (Jay) Sohn is an assistant professor of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
He received his B.S. from the University of Michigan in 2001, completed his Ph.D. at Duke University in 2008 and joined the faculty of Johns Hopkins in early 2011.
In his research, Dr. Sohn uses mechanistic enzymology and x-ray crystallography to study allosterically regulated biological stress-sensors with the purpose of understanding how they are assembled, how they detect danger signals and how they initiate stress-response.
He has authored or co-authored several peer-reviewed publications.
