Man Hee Rhee graduated in veterinary medicine in 1989 and completed his M.S. degree in 1991 and then his Ph.D. degree in 2000 at Neurobiology Department, Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel. He then spent 3 years at the Department of Cell Biology & Physiology, Washington University School of Medicine, USA, as a Research Associate. He investigated the mechanisms involved in GPCR-RGS signaling using genetically deleted RGS2 mice in St. Louis. Rhee, in 2003, joined Kyungpook National University as an Assistant Professor and, in 2009, was promoted to be an Associate Professor of veterinary medicine, Kyungpook National University. Rhee lectures on veterinary physiology and practice, veterinary neuroscience, GPCR, and second messengers. His current research interests include the signal transduction of cannabinoid receptors and the possible role of regulator of G-protein signaling on the cannabinoid function, protective effects of natural products such as ginseng and mushroom compounds on cardiovascular disorders, and the anti-inflammatory effect of natural products in LPS-activated murine macrophage cell line.
