Abraham Lee's Biography

Abraham Lee, Chancellor’s Professor, Biomedical Engineering & Director, Center for Advanced Design & Manufacturing of Integrated Microfluidics, University of California-Irvine

Abraham (Abe) P. Lee is Chancellor's Professor in the Biomedical Engineering (BME) Department with a courtesy appointment in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE) at the University of California, Irvine. He is the Director of the NSF I/UCRC “Center for Advanced Design & Manufacturing of Integrated Microfluidics” (CADMIM). Prior to UCI, he was at the National Cancer Institute and a program manager in the Microsystems Technology Office at DARPA (1999-2001). Dr. Lee’s lab focuses on developing active integrated microfluidics and droplet microfluidic platforms. These platforms are applied to point-of-care and molecular diagnostics, “smart” nanomedicine for early detection and treatment, single cell processing and analysis, and tissue engineering and cell-based therapeutics. His research has contributed to the founding of several start-up companies. Dr. Lee serves as an associate editor for the Lab on a Chip journal and he is also an advisor to companies and government agencies. He owns 42 issued US patents and is author of over 100 journals articles. Professor Lee was awarded the 2009 Pioneers of Miniaturization Prize and is an elected fellow of the National Academy of Inventors, the American Institute of and Medical and Biological Engineering and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
