After completing a bachelor's and a master's degree at Harvard, Dr. Lee then completed his medical school (M.D.) and graduate school (Ph.D.) training at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in the Bronx, New York. He came to MGH for internal medicine residency training and then completed medical oncology fellowship training through the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute / MGH joint program. During that time, he performed basic science research at the Whitehead Institute of MIT.
ResearchSince joining the staff at MGH, Dr. Lee has been engaged in translational studies of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from peripheral blood, using a new technology developed at MGH. Our hope is that this "CTC-Chip" may have clinical usefulness for cancer patients. In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Lee is also interested in clinical trials of new drugs to treat genitourinary cancers.
