Dr. Jack Lee

Dr Jack Lee, a biostatistician/Bioinformatics Scientist, graduated in Statistics and Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario and Lakehead University in Canada, studied Finance at SUFE, and also studied Finance Engineering at UC Berkeley before coming to CUHK in 2004. He has a long-term experience as a Statistical Consultant, Teaching staff and Researcherduring the studying periods in Canada. His statistical computing teaching/Supervisory experience engaged not only in medical research but also in industrial, econometric, educational fields. He worked in the Chinese University of Hong Kong as a biostatistician/bioinformatics scientist since 2004 till now. His main research area at the early stage was the methodology developing in Bioinformatics and mainly focus on the development of the prognostic methods that related to the microarray, CGH analysis applied in HCC. Recently his main research area is focusing not only on methods development in Biostatistics but also in Medical Device Development. This mainly related to image processing for retinal images associated with diseases such as Diabetic, etc. At the same time, he has supervised or consulted for more than hundreds of projects or papers in CUHK Since 2004.
