Dr. Lee has worked in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries for the past 35 years as head of clinical research, biostatistics and regulatory affairs (besides serving as Adjunct Professor of Biostatistics at UCLA over that same period). Most recently he has served (and continues to serve) as Vice President of Clinical Research and Development for Prolacta Bioscience, a company he helped found, whose goal is to provide human milk nutrition to extremely premature infants in the neonatal intensive care unit. Dr. Lee's long-term interests are in the area of clinical trials and clinical trial design, particularly as they pertain to biologics and biotechnologically produced proteins. His research in this area has covered such areas as the development of statistical test procedures for bioequivalency studies, particularly those that involve matched paired designs. Dr. Lee has also worked extensively on the development of robust estimation and semi-parametric models for the analysis of pharmacokinetic data. Recently, he has taken an interest in pharmacoeconomic modeling and has been working on Markov models for the assessment of cost-effectiveness of new diagnostic procedures for cervical cancer. The studies Dr. Lee has been involved in have given him the opportunity to work extensively with researchers in the fields of immunology, hematology, and oncology. Thus, Dr Lee's activities have allowed him to extend his scope far beyond biostatistical research.
