Annette T.Lee, PhD

Dr. Lee received her Bachelor of Science degree from Northeastern in 1984 and continued her education as a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow at The Rockefeller University, where she received her Ph.D. in 1989. She is currently Assistant Investigator / Associate Dean, Elmezzi Graduate School of Molecular Medicine at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research where she runs the genotyping facility and performs whole genome association studies and targeted SNP replication studies.

Dr. Lee’s Brookdale National Fellowship research focused on DNA damage and aging. Using a transgenic mouse model system, she investigated the mutation frequency of a specific transgene contained in each cell of this mouse strain as a function of chronological age. The characterization of these mutations may help to explain the increased occurrence of cancer in older individuals. The other aspect of Dr. Lee’s research is directed toward identifying those DNA adducts leading to age-related mutations.
