Lance Lee, PhD

2015 Innovator Award Recipient

TITLE:  Faculty Member, Sanford Research

GOAL:  Identify Risk Modifiers in the Development of Hydrocephalus.


Dr. Lance Lee is a faculty member in the Children’s Health Research Center at Sanford Research. Dr. Lee studies the genetic causes of primary ciliary dyskinesia, which has been linked to hydrocephalus. In his study, Genetic Modifiers of Congenital Hydrocephalus, Dr. Lee will study genes that modify the risk of developing hydrocephalus. By identifying these genetic modifiers, new drug targets may emerge to prevent or cure congenital hydrocephalus.
