Sounds like a great fit for his skill-set, too. Here’s the story, out of San Francisco — do go read it all:
. . . .Kim, 55, who earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from Stanford in 1985, will also be a member of the new Stanford Institute of Chemical Biology after he joins the school Feb. 1, 2014.
The institute is a joint venture of the School of Medicine, School of Engineering and School of Humanities & Sciences that will look at the chemical foundations of biomedical science. . . .
We wish him all the best. I think he will prove himself to be all we’ve come to expect of Merck scientists, in the New Millennium.
