Biography
Joo-Hyeon Lee was fascinated by stem cell research through Ph.D. studies under the supervision of Prof. Daesik Lim in KAIST, Korea. She then joined Prof. Carla Kim’s laboratory at Harvard Medical School where she became interested in the study of adult lung stem cells. She established her own research group at the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute in 2016 and focuses on understanding cellular behavior and regulatory networks of adult stem and niche cells. Joo-Hyeon is currently Faculty member at the Department of Physiology, Development, and Neuroscience, University of Cambridge and was recently awarded the Royal Society and Wellcome Trust Sir Henry Dale Fellowship and ERC starting grant.
Role
OCM
11th International Conference on Cancer Stem Cells and Oncology Research
Research Interests
Lee lab applies mouse genetics, ex vivo organoid co-cultures, live imaging, single-cell molecular analysis and mathematic modelling to define the identity and heterogeneity of diverse epithelial progenitor and mesenchymal populations, understand the key stem-mesenchymal interactions and the precise mechanisms that maintain tissue homeostasis and regeneration. Specifically, they are asking how the quiescent state is maintained and becomes activated, how cell fate is determined, and how niches develop and remodel in lung homeostasis, injury repair and early tumorigenesis.
