Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE) professor Kyu Yong Choi has been elected to the Executive Committee of the Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO), which fosters scientific and engineering research and education exchanges between the United States and South Korea. KUSCO is supported by the Korea Research Foundation, the counterpart to the U.S.'s National Science Foundation.

Choi, an elected Permanent Member of the Korea Academy of Science and Technology, is a longtime advocate of scientific collaboration between the two countries, and often encourages students to learn new languages and to study engineering abroad. Recently, he helped ChBE rising junior and Choi Group member Lisa Wiest secure a Boren Scholarship, which will support her study of Korean during the 2012-2013 academic year at Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea.
