Background

Dr. Youngmok Lee received his Ph.D. in agricultural biotechnology in 2006, Dr. Lee moved to the NIH in 2008 to study GSD, and completed two postdoctoral fellowships in the laboratory of Dr. Janice Chou. For the past several years, Dr. Lee has been working on gene therapy with GSD Ia and Ib. He has also been involved with studies on detailed mechanism of GSD Ia and immune function in GSD Ib. At UConn Health, Dr. Lee directs basic studies on GSD Ia, Ib, and VI including gene therapy. His focus also includes full gene sequencing, as we strive to elucidate the cause of the GSD for the four percent of patients, for whom mutations have yet to be found.
