Dr. Lee's research interest is connective tissue engineering using mesenchymal stem cells. As an orthopedic surgeon, there have been a number of cases where bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells and bone graft substitutes were applied for the treatment of skeletal defects. Another area of research is to develop a novel molecular adjuvant treatment for sarcomas using mesenchymal stem cells and siRNAs.
