During a recent AOCS Asian Section meeting, a new leadership team was finalized.
The Asian Section, comprised of nearly 70 individuals, meets twice a year and is very supportive of individuals and companies attending and presenting at AOCS Annual Meetings, especially the Biotechnology Division’s events.
AOCS appreciates the time and commitment outgoing officers have given to the section: Kazuo Miyashita, Suk Hoo Yoon and Ching Hou.
AOCS would also like to welcome Dr. Ahmad Parveez and In-Hwan Kim to the Asian Section’s leadership team.

Here we would like to highlight the newest members of the Asian Section’s leadership team:
In-Hwan Kim is currently a Professor in the School of Biosystems and Biomedical Sciences in the College of Health Science at Korea University. He holds an MSc and PhD in Food Science and Engineering from the same institution. His research primarily focuses on lipid modification for food and non-food with enzymatic methods. He’s also interested in supercritical extraction regarding bioactive compounds. He decided to volunteer as a member of the committee as a result of his active participation, presenting papers in this section and hopes to help the Biotechnology Division grow. In this role, he further looks forward to networking with fellow researchers and learning about their research endeavors.
