Sung You Hong was educated at Seoul National University (BSc, 2002, summa cum laude). From 2002 to 2003, he worked with Prof. Reshef Tenne at Weizmann Institute of Science as a visiting student (government invitation program), investigating the coordination structures of metal sulfides. While carrying out his graduate studies (DPhil, Organic Chemistry, 20052009) at the University of Oxford, he designed and synthesized non-natural glyco-conjugates under the guidance of Prof. Benjamin G. Davis (supervisor, carbohydrate chemistry) and Prof. Malcolm L. H. Green (co-advisor, coordination chemistry). Following this, he joined in the Peter H. Seeberger Group at the Max Planck Institute (Bimolecular systems) as a postdoctoral researcher working on carbohydrate chemistry and metal-catalyzed reactions. He began an independent career in late 2010 at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST). His research has centered on the development of synthetic methods based on the understanding of catalytic manifolds and the design of reagents.
