Dr. Bang is a native of South Korea where he studied physics before moving to Chicago, Illinois. His interest in understanding humanity helped him explore various activities that people often focus on, especially arts and music during his college years. His nature of enjoying an intellectual challenge in addition to the curiosity of getting to know some unexplored fields eventually led him to medical and engineering fields where he spent some years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagin and University of Texas at El Paso, where he earned his PhD.  Dr. Bang also holds an MD from the University of Illinois, Chicago. His current research focus is on ultrafine and nanomaterial in exposure and risk assessments and remediation perspectives. He would like to know more about various mechanisms behind exposure process and pathophysiology for maximizing preventive methods development.
