Haram Park

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Dr Haram Park is a neuroscientist whose research focuses on how innate behaviour is expressed and how it is changed within the context of neuropsychiatric diseases. He received his PhD in 2019 at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) under Prof Eunjoon Kim, where he studied how autism spectrum disorder (ASD)-related behaviours are manifested in different genetic models, as well as how disruption of molecular interactions across the synapse leads to disruptions in innate behaviours. He has presented his findings in numerous international conferences including The Brain Conference, The FENS Forum, and the UK-Korea Neuroscience Symposium.

Haram joined Prof Gero Miesenböck’s lab in DPAG as a Postdoctoral Researcher in 2019 and Magdalen College as a Fellow by Examination in 2020. He has previously held an European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) Postdoctoral Fellowship (2020) and currently holds a National Research Foundation (NRF, S. Korea) Postdoctoral Fellowship (since 2021). 

Haram’s current project focuses on recent breakthroughs in the Miesenböck lab that revealed how the ‘need to sleep’ is tracked in the brain at a biochemical and electrophysiological level. His aim is to take the findings further to understand the details of sleep homeostasis in the brain.
