Eddie Lee, M.D., Ph.D. (Principle Investigator)

Eddie“I received my medical degree and doctoral degree in Neuroscience from Penn, followed by clinical training in Anatomic Pathology and Neuropathology from HUP.  I am currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and a practicing neuropathologist in the illustrious Division of Neuropathology.

My research involves using of advanced molecular, biochemical and histologic techniques to analyze brain tissue in order to (1) understanding the interaction between peripheral obesity and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and (2) the role of RNA-binding proteins in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobar dementia. I am also a co-investigator in the neuropathology cores of the Penn Alzheimer's Disease Core Center (ADCC) and the Penn Udall Center for Parkinson's Disease Research.

My goals include establishing a world-class experimental neuropathology laboratory and supporting lab members in our collective mission to increase our understanding of the causes and cures of aging-related neurodegenerative diseases.”

 

Elaine Liu (NGG Graduate Student)

Elaine"I obtained my bachelor's degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in Albany, NY. I would like to broaden my interest and knowledge in neurodegenerative research during my graduate degree at Penn. My goals are to use different techniques to analyze abnormal RNA metabolism in human tissue."
