Dr. Lee is a NIAAA-funded transplant hepatologist specializing in patient care before and after liver transplant. His research focuses on improving health for patients with alcohol use disorder and alcohol-associated liver disease, through: 1) early liver transplant for alcohol-associated hepatitis; 2) inequities in healthcare access; 3) public policy and advocacy; 4) novel therapeutics and translational studies. His research has resulted in first-author studies published in Annals of Internal Medicine, Lancet Public Health, JAMA Internal Medicine, Gastroenterology, Journal of Hepatology, among others. His research has featured in national media with NBC Nightly News, Today Show, NPR, CNN, Forbes, Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, among others.
