Speaker Profile

Ph.D., CEO and Co-founder, ImpriMed

Sungwon Lim is a bioengineer/entrepreneur with 20 years of collective experience in academia, pharmaceutical companies, and biotech industries. He co-founded ImpriMed in 2017 with a strong motivation to innovate a way to help cancer patients who need an effective treatment “today”, by optimizing and personalizing drug treatment options currently available in our medical toolbox. ImpriMed builds comparative oncology platforms for precision medicine. The team first developed and validated new cell-based, functional precision medicine technologies and AI-based predictive models in the veterinary oncology space at a significantly higher speed with readily accessible clinical data. ImpriMed is now using the collected database and knowledge to apply to human oncology for the same cancer type. Dr. Lim received his Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Stanford University, M.S. in Translational Medicine at U.C. Berkeley and U.C. San Francisco, and B.S. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
