Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only) 
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details 
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email. 

You can link to your Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts through Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’.  In the 'Links' section, use the 'Add link' button.

Dr Yanghee Kim is an Anniversary Fellow at the University of Southampton, in the Faculty of Medicine. Her research centres on the development of biomaterials and harnessing their potential for tissue regeneration. She has been involved in designing and chemically modifying scaffolds and hydrogels, evaluating them through in vitro and in vivo studies, and has contributed to publications in esteemed journals such as Nature Communications, Biomaterials, Biofabrication, Bone, and Advanced Healthcare Materials. 

During her PhD studies at Kyoto University in Japan, Dr Kim concentrated on enhancing immune cell recruitment to tissue defects and modulating the immune cell phenotypes through a drug delivery system to accelerate the tissue regeneration process. 

Since joining the Bone and Joint Research Group at the Centre for Human Development, Stem cells, and Regenerative Medicine in 2016, Dr Kim has been involved in the development of clay nanoparticles for stem cell-driven tissue regeneration as part of Dr Dawson’s EPSRC fellowship (Nanoclay group). Additionally, she has served as a product and process development scientist for Renovos, a regenerative medicine spin-out company. 

Dr Kim's current research focuses on modulating macrophage and stem cell responses to bioactive Nanoclay for bone regeneration, in collaboration with Kyoto University, Japan, funded by the MRC-AMED Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research Initiative grant. 

You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.
