Tae Ho Lee, PhD

Tae Ho Lee is an assistant professor in the Division of Gerontology, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He received his PhD in the Department of Biochemistry at the McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He conducted his post-doctoral research in the laboratory of Dr. Kun Ping Lu at Harvard Medical School. He studied the role of protein post-translational modifications in aging and age-related diseases, including AD and cancer. His laboratory uses neuron-derived stem cells and mouse models to study the complex mechanisms involved in AD. The main goals of his research are to determine the molecular mechanisms by which post-translational modifications regulate AD, and to identify potential targets for drugs to cure or prevent disease progression. He is also actively involved in teaching and training research and clinical fellows.
