Current Research and Scholarly Interests
The overall theme of Dr. Lee's research is to identify and reconstruct the key morphodynamic features of the hierarchical neural organizations in developmental, pathological, and remodeling phases. The insights from these investigations have direct implications for developing tissue regenerative strategies that could induce desirable behaviors of endogenous or exogenously grafted cells. My experimental model is developed on hydrogel-based 3D engineered tissues and organs-on-chips. In addition, there is a parallel effort to translate the 3D tissue design strategies into a cell-based high-throughput platform for efficient screening of the biologically active molecules. The multiscale features of these investigations are implemented by interdisciplinary collaboration across the fields of microfabrication, drug delivery, microfluidics, biomaterials, bioimaging, computational analysis and cell biology.
We are currently accepting new colleagues in the fields of, but not limited to, organ-on-chip, bioengineering, bioimage, biomaterials, nano/micro biotechnology, cancer, development, and immunology. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of our approach, the lab members are encouraged to arrange a co-mentorship with a Stanford faculty in her/his own field.
To apply, please send to Wonjae (email@example.com) your CV, a description of research interests and accomplishment, and the names and contact information of three references.
Interested students are encouraged to commit to a rotation project prior to joining the lab. Please contact Wonjae.
