August 2013: Dr. Han Won a MU IP Fast-track Award for Storage of Stem Cells at -80°C.

Dr. Han collaborating with the Dr. Michael Roberts, a member of National Academic of Sciences, to develop a novel cryopreservation media and procedure to enable long-term storage and safe shipment of both epiblast and naïve type stem cells at temperatures near -80°C (e.g. in a deep freezer or dry ice box).
