Seungjun "Jason" Lee, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Research

Jason's project focuses on imaging the overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in living subject which is implicated in the development of numerous diseases. ROS is byproduct of cell metabolism. In normal situation, most of ROS is scavenged by cellular antioxidants. Overproduction of ROS is induced by food, chemicals, smoke, stress or disease, such as diabetes, Alzheimer, or inflammatory bowel disease. The early detection of the overproduction of ROS is important for prevention and diagnosis of these diseases. He is using hydro-cyanine dyes to localize and quantify the overproduction of ROS in inflammatory disease animal models.

Education/Background

Jason earned his bachelors in industrial chemistry from the Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea in 1996. He majored in biomedical engineering at the graduate school of the same university for his master’s degree. Following graduation, Jason worked in the Biomaterials Laboratory in St. Mary Hospital Institute of Biomedical Science, Seoul, Korea as an assistant researcher. He earned his doctoral degree in bioengineering from the Pennsylvania State University in 2004. After graduation, he worked in the Cellular and Molecular Physiology Department in Louisiana State University in Shreveport as a post doctoral fellow until December 2008.
