Abraham Lee's Biography



Abraham Lee, Professor, University of California Irvine

Abraham (Abe) P. Lee is the William J. Link Chair and Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) with a joint appointment in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of California at Irvine in the USA. He also serves as the director of the Micro/nano Fluidics Fundamentals Focus (MF3) Center, a DARPA-industry supported research center currently with more than 10 industrial members. Prior to joining the UCI faculty in 2002, he was with the Office of Technology and Industrial Relations at the National Cancer Institute as a Senior Technology Advisor, and before that he was a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) (1999-2001). Dr. Lee’s current research is focused on the development of active integrated microfluidics (electrofluidics and acoustic) and droplet microfluidic platforms for the following applications: biosensors to detect environmental and terrorism threats, point-of-care and molecular diagnostics, “smart” nanomedicine for early detection and treatment, automated cell sorting technologies, and tissue engineering and cell-based therapeutics. His research has contributed to the founding of several start-up companies and he also serves as an advisor to companies and government agencies. Dr. Lee served as an editor for the Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (2004-2009) and is currently the associate editor of the Lab on a Chip journal. He has given more than 100 invited presentations, owns 38 issued US patents and has published over 70 peer-reviewed journals articles. Professor Lee was awarded the 2009 Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize by Corning and Lab on a Chip and is an elected fellow of the American Institute of and Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Dr. Lee received his doctoral degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley in 1992 and his bachelor’s degree in Power Mechanical Engineering from National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan in 1986.

While droplet and bubble microfluidics promise new platforms for diagnostics and therapeutics, challenges remain in scaling up to large numbers of these “micro-vesicles” as reactors and carriers for biotechnology and biomedicine. Scaled-up microfluidic approaches are required and will be introduced.
