Lee (Jeon) Lab

Our research is aimed at innovating and translating computational technology to advance biomedical research and medical diagnoses/treatments.

  • Jeon Lee, Ph.D.

Lehrman Lab

The Lehrman lab uses biochemical approaches to study the functions of sugars and sugar-polymers coupled to proteins and lipids, and as free molecules. Our work involves broken-cell systems, living cultured cells, and animals. This area of research, known as Glycobiology, is an emerging field that encompasses most aspects of biology and medicine.

Levi Lab

Our mission is to improve the lives of people living with skin and musculoskeletal diseases through rigorous science and compassion.

  • Benjamin Levi, M.D.

Li (Bo) Lab

We are interested in understanding the process of co-evolution of tumor and immune cells during cancer development, which can be tracked from clonal expansion events, together with components of the tumor microenvironment and infiltrating immune repertoire.

  • Bo Li, PhD

Li (Guo-Min) Lab

We are broadly interested in cellular mechanisms maintaining genome stability and their impact on human diseases, including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders.
