Christopher H. Lee, BS

  • Graduate Student

Christopher Lee joined the Department of Pediatrics in July 2017. He is a PhD candidate in the laboratory of Dr. Terence Dermody. Currently, his thesis research is focused on understanding molecular mechanisms that direct the biogenesis and maturation of reovirus intracellular factories. In pursuit of this research he has been able to cultivate his general research interests in virology, RNA biology, and biochemistry.

Prior to joining the University of Pittsburgh, he worked at the CDC developing high throughput neutralization assays. After the completion of his doctorate studies, he intends to pursue a career analyzing biotech companies as investment opportunities.
