A Short Biography:
Professor Lee received a B.A. summa cum laude in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1988 from Harvard College, and a Ph.D. in Structural Biology from Stanford University in 1993. He co-founded Molecular Applications Group with Michael Levitt in 1993, and served as Vice-President for Research until 1998. After completing a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Chemistry at Stanford, he joined the UCLA faculty in 1998.
Prof. Lee accepts graduate students through the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Graduate Program and the UCLA ACCESS Ph.D. Program.
Prof. Lee has been a Faculty member in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry since 1998. His training provided an unusual combination of experimental cell biology, biophysics, and algorithm development, which he has has applied at UCLA to bioinformatics analysis of genome evolution. He has led efforts to establish a bioinformatics Ph.D. program at UCLA. He has served on the Board of Scientific Counselors, NIH National Center for Biotechnology Information, and serves on the editorial board of Biology Direct
. His current research focuses on alternative splicing and its role in genome evolution.
