L. James Lee, PhD, is a member of the Leukemia Research Program at the OSUCCC – James, where his research focuses on polymer engineering of nanomaterials and nanotechnology as they apply to BioMEMS (Bio-Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems).

In particular, he is interested in how MEMS technology can assist in cancer detection and treatment, as well as cell reprogramming for regenerative medicine.

One of his recent research projects indicates a new role for human PMR1 endonuclease as a stimulator of cell motility by downregulating microRNAs in breast cancer cells.

Dr. Lee has co-authored many articles in well-respected publications, including Leukemia, Cancer Cell, Nanomedicine and Nucleic Acids Research.
