Dr. C.Y. Daniel Lee is an adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences at David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He received his B.S. and M.S. degree from National Taiwan University in Taiwan. After fulfilling his military service duty, he came to the United States to pursue doctoral education at Case Western Reserve University, where he studied the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease in the laboratory of Dr. Gary Landreth, and received his Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience in 2012. He did his postdoctoral training with Dr. X. William Yang at UCLA, using human genomic mouse models to study Huntington’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, and joined UCLA faculty in 2019. His current research integrates mouse genetics, systems biology and cell biology to study the role and regulation of microglial function in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease. He also leads the projects of high-throughput drug screening and biomarker development for neurodegenerative diseases.
