Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Sciences and Education and the Grant Writer at the Boston University School of Medicine. She received a BS in Bioengineering from Rice University and earned her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. She also was an American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellow and a Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Her research focused on cardiovascular biomaterials and tissue engineering.

Dr. Lee has over a decade of experience in writing and editing scientific texts for a wide variety of audiences. As an undergraduate, she was the technical editor for the introductory-level textbook Bioengineering Fundamentals (Prentice Hall 2006) and worked in the Scientific Publications Department at the Texas Heart Institute editing clinical manuscripts. She has also assisted numerous individuals through the fellowship application process and has helped a few organizations secure SBIR funding.

Dr. Lee's role in the Office of Proposal Development is to guide new and non-native English-speaking principal investigators in developing and writing their first grant submissions. Dr. Lee's intent is to help investigators learn to distill high-level scientific research into clear and concise concepts for audiences with diverse backgrounds. In today’s uncertain funding environment, there is no room for permitting people untrained in scientific rigor to misconstrue the true importance and potential contributions of the research community at the Boston University School of Medicine.
