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 study the molecular pathways associated with neuropathologic inclusions in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobar dementia. I am also a co-leader of the neuropathology cores of the Penn Alzheimer's Disease Core Center (ADCC) neuropathology core 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.”
