Biography

Professor Lee is the Arnold and Barbara Silverman Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering, Director of the Biomedical Institute for Global Healthcare Technology, and Co-Director of the Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC).

His current research interests are bionanoscience, nanomedicine for global healthcare and personalized medicine, and Bioinspired Photonics-Optofluidics-Electronics Technology and Science (BioPOETS) for green building with living skin. Prior to joining BSAC, Professor Lee was the Chair Professor in Systems Nanobiology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH, Zurich) and has more than ten years of industrial experience in integrated optoelectronics, Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs), and biomagnetic assays.

Professor Lee is a 2010 Ho-Am Laureate and has authored and co-authored over 250 papers on bionanophotonics, microfluidics, single cell biology, quantitative biomedicine, molecular diagnostics, optofluidics, BioMEMS, biosensors, SQUIDs, SERS, and nanogap junction biosensor for label-free biomolecule detection. He received his B.A. degree in Biophysics and his Ph.D. degree in Applied Science & Technology: Applied Physics (major) / Bioengineering (minor) from the University of California, Berkeley.
