Yonghyun (John) Kim ’02 (Seoul, Korea) has coauthored a paper with two professors that recently was published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Bernard Fried, professor emeritus of biology, Joseph Sherma, professor emeritus of chemistry, and Kim wrote “Thin layer chromatographic analysis of lutein and B-carotene in Biomphalaria glabrata maintained on a high-fat diet,” published this year in The Veliger.

Last year, they collaborated to write “Thin-layer chromatographic analysis of carbohydrates in Biomphalaria glabrata snails maintained on a high-fat diet,” published in Journal of Planar Chromatography-Modern TLC.

Kim, who worked with the professors as an EXCEL Scholar, graduated in May as a double major in biochemistry and chemical engineering. This fall, he will begin graduate studies in chemical engineering at the University of Maryland.

Kim is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and received Lafayette’s Carl J. Staska Prize, given each year to a student who has demonstrated a degree of proficiency in chemical laboratory skills. He served as president of Lafayette Christian Fellowship and was a member of American Chemical Society and the Lafayette Organization of Science & Technology. He also served a summer internship at Mallinckrodt Baker, Inc.
