International journal of Nano Scientific Networks and Nanotechnology (IJNN) is a multidisciplinary, peer reviewed journal which includes all the major fields in nanotechnology and Nano science. Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. It is the engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale. This covers both current work and concepts that are more advanced.  International journal of Nano Scientific Networks and Nanotechnology   publishes original research papers during a broad area of nanoscience & engineering. IJNN provides an ideal forum for presenting original reports of theoretical and experimental nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanotechnology is a gathering of rising innovations in which the structure of matter is controlled at the nanometer scale, the size of little quantities of molecules, to create novel materials and gadgets that have valuable and one of kind properties. IJNN is naturally multidisciplinary, and welcomes submissions across biological, physical, engineering, and computer sciences. Contributions from both academia and industry are equally encouraged. IJNN also publishes innovative techniques and instrumentation for the fabrication, characterization and testing of nano-enabled devices and technologies, as well as advanced modelling and simulation methods.

Sorah Yoon

Staff scientist

 

Dr. Sorah Yoon (D.V.M., Ph.D.) is a staff scientist working at Beckman research institute of City of Hope. She received her Master and the Ph.D. degree in Veterinary medicine in 1998 and in 2010, respectively. During her Ph.D. period, she has focused her research on the development of RNA aptamers in viral disease for oligonucleotide therapeutics. During a post-doctoral position at Beckman research institute of City of Hope, Duarte, the USA from 2011 to 2016, she joined the Dr. John Rossi lab to develop RNA aptamers targeting pancreatic cancer. After post-doctoral training, she promoted to staff scientist in 2017 and continued her work in the same lab, developing RNA aptamers targeting cancers. She leads the activity on aptamer development and in vivo test.

Also, she has been invited a speaker in international conferences in China, Malaysia, and the 
USA. She is actively involving to expand her career in journal editors and scientific coordinators.
