Dr. Lee has extensive experience in statistical research in molecular genetics and bioinformatics. He has worked on statistical approaches to genetic population inference, DNA structure analysis, high-throughput gene chip technologies, and linkage association study for human genetic diseases. He has also applied and developed computational statistical techniques to attack various challenging problems in molecular biology and cancer genetics. This includes anticancer gene-drug discovery on high throughput gene expression data and linkage association study for identifying quantitative trait loci of pedigree data. Dr. Lee's current interest is in the analysis of microarray gene expression data. Dr. Lee serves as Director of the UVA GeneChip/Microarray Bioinformatics Core (GMB), which provides statistical and bioinformatics support for UVA researchers' microarray studies.
