Dr. Sung Mun Lee joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering of Khalifa University in June 2011. In Khalifa University, his research focused on the development of novel drugs and drug delivery systems for treating inflammatory diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. The proposed research plan draws on expertise acquired during the graduate (2005, Ph.D. Texas A&M University) and post-doctoral (2006-2011, Georgia Tech) studies. During his postdoctoral and Ph.D. studies, he developed a novel polymer-based drug delivery systems (DDS) to deliver therapeutic proteins or genes successfully and he also investigated the mechanisms of brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, in order to develop treatments and design appropriate DDS. He has designed novel drug delivery systems, proved the hypothesis using cell culture work, and published his work in reputable journals.
