Prof. Lee has received B. S. degree from Seoul National University (1974), and Ph. D from Rutgers University in organic chemistry (1981). He worked as a Post Doc. in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Chicago (1981-82). He is now a professor at the School of Chemical & Biological Engineering (1993-current) and adjunct professor in the Department of Nano Science and Technology, Seoul National University (2009-current).
He was a visiting professor at Dept of Chemistry, University of Arizona (1991), Protein Research Institute, Osaka University (2002), and the Max Mousseron Institute of Biomolecules (IBMM), University of Montpellier 1 (2011). He has served as the president of the Korean Society of Industrial & Engineering Chemistry (2011), the president of Korean Peptide and Protein Society (2010-11), and the president of the Korean Union of Chemical Science and Technology Societies (2013).
Prof. Lee’s work at SNU has been mainly focused on solid-phase organic chemistry, especially, in developing polymer supported catalysts for organic synthesis and polymer supports for solid-phase peptide synthesis. Recently, he has been involved in developing nanoparticle sensors, especially in SERS nano tags, for peptide library synthesis and multiplex detection of biomolecules.
