Jinwoo Lee was born in Seoul, Korea.  He received his bachelor degree in chemistry in 2006.  After receiving his B.S. degree, he moved to the States and started graduate research under supervision of Prof. K. J. Glover at Lehigh University.  His thesis research was solving the membrane protein structure called Caveolin using solution NMR technique.  Upon receiving his Ph.D. in 2013, he joined the Tamm Lab where he is working on the  investigation of pH triggering mechanism Ebola virus fusion loop.
