    존경하는 KASBP 회원, 임원 후원사 여러분,

    Dear fellow members, officers and sponsors of KASBP:

    지금까지 회장으로 수고해 주셨던 최윤 박사님의 뒤를 이어, 이번 7월부터 재미한인제약인협회 (Korea-American Society in Biotech and Pharmaceuticals, “KASBP”) 15 회장으로서 임기를 시작한 김승빈 입니다. 최윤 박사님의 퇴임사와 동시에 바로 여러분께 인사 올렸어야 했는데 인사가 조금 늦어진 , 여러분의 너그러운 양해를 부탁드립니다.

    Greetings from Sean Seungbin KIM, the 15th President of KASBP since July 1, 2018, following Yun H. Choe, the 14th President of KASBP.  Please pardon for the delayed greetings, as it should have been delivered to you right after Dr. Choe’s note.

    여러분도 이미 아시다시피 저희 재미한인제약인협회는 17여년 전에 설립되어 지금까지 양적으로, 그리고 질적으로 많은 발전을 거듭해 왔습니다. 처음 뉴저지에서 제약 바이오 산업에 종사하는 몇몇 선배님들이 한국 제약전문가의 모임에 대한 필요성을 느껴 저희 협회를 창설하셨을 때에는 아마 재미한인제약인협회가 이정도로 성장할 것이라고는 상상하지 못하셨을 것입니다. 그러나 그동안 과거 회장들을 비롯한 많은 분들이 각자의 바쁘고 고된 삶에도 불구하고 미국과 한국의 제약 바이오 산업의 발전에 대한 꿈을 잊지 않고 헌신하셨기에 지금의 저희가 존재할 있었습니다. 이자리를 빌어 모든 선배님들 특히 임원들께 깊은 감사의 말씀을 올립니다. 그리고 이렇게 훌륭한 모임을 더욱더 훌륭하게 만들어야 하는 책임이 저희 새로운 임원들의 어깨에 이제 지워졌습니다.

    As you are well aware of, KASBP has begun its journey about 17 years ago and continued to grow in quality and quantity.  When it was started by few initial members working in Pharmaceutical industries in New Jersey, because of the need for an association of Korean-American Pharmaceutical professionals, no one could have imagined that KASBP would grow up as of today.  However, because of the dedication and commitment of the previous presidents and other members among their busy lives, today’s KASBP became possible.  The volunteers of KASBP dreamed of the advance of bio and pharmaceutical industry in US and Korea to continue their hard work.  Taking this opportunity, we would like to thank all of the volunteers and sponsors.  Now, we feel a heavy burden on our shoulder to make this great association into greater one.

    현재 재미한인제약인협회는 본부와 더불어 뉴저지, 필라델피아, 워싱턴DC, 코네티컷, 샌프란시스코, 보스턴, 그리고 얼마전에 창립식을 가진 일리노이 지부 일곱개의 지부에서 제약회사 바이오 , 학계 연구소, 그리고 미국 정부기관에 근무하는 1,200 여명 이상의 회원들로 이루어져 있습니다. 여러분도 익히 아시다시피 저희는 매년 두번의 심포지엄을 봄과 가을에 걸쳐 개최하여 미국과 한국의 전문가들의 사이에 원할한 정보 소통과 인간적 교류를 촉진할 있는 환경을 조성하고 있으며, 동시에 이러한 공식 행사외에도 한국의 여러 정부 민간 기관들과의 협력을 통해 저희 조국 대한민국의 생명과학산업 발전에 직접적으로 이바지하고 있습니다. 또한 저희는 젊은 세대의 양육의 책임과 사명을 자각하고 있기에 저희 협회 내에 학생 젊은 연구자들의 모임과mentor-mentee 관계를 통한 기성세대와의 상호교류를 장려하여 세대를 거듭할 수록 더욱더 성장할 있는 발판을 마련하기 위해 노력하고 있습니다.

    As of today, KASBP has 8 offices including Headquarter in New Jersey and 7 chapters in Boston (KASBP-Boston), Connecticut (KASBP-CT), New Jersey (KASBP-NJ), Philadelphia (KASBP-Phila), Washington DC (KASBP-DC), Illinois (KASBP-IL), and San Francisco (KASBP-SF), with about 1,200 members spread in pharmaceutical and biotech industry and research organizations, government institutes, and academia.  We host two symposiums annually in Spring and Fall to facilitate the networking of the scientists and professionals in these industry from Korea and US.  In addition, we also continue to collaborate with Korean government funded agencies and other private organizations to contribute to the development of life science industry in Korea.  Furthermore, we feel the obligation to nurture the next generation professions in this industry returning the favor to the society.   We not only promote the relationships among the younger and older members through Mentor-Mentee program and through various other local meetings and events, but also support several student and early career professionals organizations to prepare the future leadership for the community.

    참으로 이미 놀라운 성과가 아닙니까? 모든 것들이 가능했던 까닭은 바로 이글을 읽고 계시는 여러분들의 헌신과 관심이 있었기 때문입니다. 여러분의 열정이 거대한 배를 움직이는 동력원이라면, 저희 임원들은 배의 방향을 올바르게 잡는 키입니다. 저희 임원들은 새임기를 맞아 재미한인제약인협회에 속한 모든 회원들이, 여러분들이, 저희 협회와 더불어 성장하고 발전할 있도록 많은 것들을 계획하고 계획한 바를 이루도록 불철주야 노력하겠습니다. 그러나 동시에 잊지 말아 주십시오. 재미한인제약인협회의 주인은 바로 여러분입니다. 저희와 함께 주십시오.

    Isn’t this an amazing achievement?  It was all possible only because of all of your encouragement and support.  While your passion is the power of the engine, the officers are steering the wheels of KASBP.  The new administration including myself and the officers would like to plan and carry out projects and our goal is to grow and benefit all of the members and the community through KASBP.  Please do not forget that you are the owner of KASBP and please come to work with us.

    현재 저와 임원들은 새로운 임기에 있을 여러가지 행사와 활동을 계획하고 있는 중입니다. 일환으로 우선1026-27 양일에 걸쳐 보스턴 지역에서 가을 심포지엄을 개최함을 알려드립니다. 여기에 관해 자세한 계획이 정해지는 데로 여러분들께 소식을 전하며 다시금 인사드리도록 하겠습니다. 앞으로도 저희 재미한인제약인협회에 많은 성원과 관심 부탁드리며 뜨거운 여름 가정에서 일터에서 그리고 다른 모든 곳에서 건강하시고 보람된 시간 보내시길 바랍니다. 두서없었던 긴글 읽어주셔서 감사합니다.

    We are planning various events for the new fiscal year.  Especially, the first event would be 2018 KASBP Fall Symposium which will be held in Boston on October 26-27, 2018.  The details of the symposium will follow.  Once again, thank you for your support and wish you all have a safe and great summer.

    Thank you.

    It is our great pleasure to announce the 2018 US-Korea Conference on Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship (UKC 2018). UKC 2018 will be held from Wednesday, August 1 to Saturday, August 4, 2018 in St. John’s University Conference Center in Queens, New York City, New York, United States. UKC 2018 is hosted by three prestigious organizations – the Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association (KSEA), Korean Federation of Science & Technology Societies (KOFST), and Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO).

    UKC 2018 provides valuable opportunities for cooperation between the USA and Korea. The theme of  UKC 2018 is “Leading Discoveries in the Era of the 4th Industrial Revolution.”  The program includes symposiums, forums and workshops to cover broad areas of science and technology, including but not limited to basic science, applied science, engineering, technology, entrepreneurship, and science policy. The three pillars of the UKC 2018 program are: 1) Digital Technologies/Artificial Intelligence (AI); 2) Biomedicine; 3) Robotics/Autonomous Systems.

    We are embracing Affiliated Professional Societies (APS) in the Symposiums. The Technical Groups (TG) leaders will lead the symposium and collaborate with related APSs.  All Symposiums will embrace industry professionals as well as teaching focused submission from teaching universities. Young Generation Integration to the main UKC program will include separate forums for young professionals and the young generation.

    An initiative will seek sponsorship from the US companies with effort led by industry professionals.  Lastly, a 3-day Public Program invites the Korean communities and the general public into UKC 2018.

    All of these excellent programs could not have been developed without a group of strong, dedicated leaders with servants’ hearts. Our sincere thanks go to the members of the Executive Committee, Program Committee including Symposium Chairs and Co-Chairs, the Local Arrangement Committee, Sponsor Program Committee, and the IT and Website Committee.

    We welcome your participation and look forward to seeing you at UKC 2018!
