Seoul National University is a national research university founded in 1946, located in Seoul, the capital of Korea. It is widely considered to be the most prestigious university in the country.The university comprises sixteen colleges and six professional schools, and a student body of about 28,000. It has two campuses in Seoul: the main campus in Gwanak and the medical campus in Jongno. According to data compiled by KEDI, the university spends more on its students per capita than any other university in the country that enrolls at least 10,000.The university holds a memorandum of understanding with over 700 academic institutions in 40 countries, the World Bank, and the country's first ever general academic exchange program with the University of Pennsylvania. The Graduate School of Business offers dual master's degrees with Duke University, ESSEC Business School, and the Peking University, double-degrees at the MIT Sloan School of Management and Yale School of Management, and MBA-, MS-, and PhD-candidate exchange programs with universities in ten countries on four continents. The university's international faculty headcount is 242 or 4% of the total. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen and Fields Medal recipient Hironaka Heisuke are on the faculty roster. Wikipedia.

A 5^(th) generation (5G) or a pre-5G communication system to support a higher data transmission rate than a system after a 4^(th) generation (4G) communication system such as long-term evolution (LTE) is provided. A method of determining a carrier sense threshold by one source terminal in a wireless communication system is provided. The method includes identifying whether one or more interferer terminals and one or more destination terminals exist for one source terminal, and if the terminals exist, determining a carrier sense threshold of each of the one or more interferer terminals and the one or more destination terminals based on an interference intensity received from the one or more destination terminals and a feedback link margin.

The present invention relates to a coating composition for an in-vivo implantable prosthesis including a photoinitiator, a crosslinking agent, and a phosphorylcholine (PC) monomer having an acrylate group, a method of coating an in-vivo implantable prosthesis using the coating composition, and a cosmetic prosthesis coated with the crosslinked polyphosphorylcholine. An in-vivo implantable prosthesis coated with crosslinked polyphosphorylcholine may be manufactured by a simple method of applying a coating composition including a photoinitiator, a crosslinking agent, and a phosphorylcholine (PC) monomer having an acrylate group according to the present invention, and then irradiating UV rays. The crosslinked polyphosphorylcholine coating may provide hydrophilicity for the surface and may also remarkably reduce adsorption of proteins and fibroblasts, which may cause side effects such as capsular contracture. Further, the coating has strong enough not to peel off even under stimulation, and therefore, it is maintained under vigorous activity after implantation, thereby being usefully applied to the manufacture of an in-vivo implantable prosthesis with reduced side effects, such as breast prosthesis for cosmetic surgery.

A 3D non-volatile memory device may include a dummy string selection line, string selection lines, wordlines, bitlines, a ground selection line, and memory layers. Each of the memory layers comprising channel lines respectively coupled to the bitlines via first ends and coupled to a common source line of the memory layer via second ends. The dummy string selection line, the string selection lines, the wordlines, and the ground selection line intersect with the channel lines, and each of the channel lines defines a memory string. Initializing the 3D non-volatile memory device may include programming string selection transistors coupled with the string selection lines to have one or more threshold values, and programming a dummy string selection transistor coupled with the dummy string selection line to have a predetermined threshold value, such that the dummy string selection transistor together with the string selection transistors function as string selection transistors.

A soluble catalyst for a lithium-air battery is provided. The soluble catalyst including a redox mediator (RM) has an ionization energy of about 5.5 to 7.5 eV under vacuum or an oxidation potential of 3.0 to 4.0 V and is well dissolved in an electrolyte without reacting with the electrolyte. In addition, the soluble catalyst has a HOMO level in an original state (RM), which is less than a formation energy of lithium peroxide (Li_(2)O_(2)) but maximally close to the formation energy, and has a HOMO level in an oxidized state (RM^(+)), which is greater than a HOMO level of the electrolyte.

Provided is a pharmaceutical composition for preventing or treating liver fibrosis, comprising a GPR119 ligand as an active ingredient. The composition comprising the GPR119 ligand as an active ingredient significantly inhibits the expression of collagen I, transforming growth factor (TGF) and -smooth muscle actin (-SMA), thereby inhibiting HSC activation, and also significantly inhibits HSC proliferation. Therefore, the composition may be effectively applied in improvement, prevention, inhibition or treatment of liver fibrosis
