In Heon Lee
In Heon Lee is a New Jersey-registered pharmacist and a PhD candidate in pharmaceutical science at Rutgers University (Piscataway, NJ). He received his PharmD from Rutgers University in 2015. He joined Dr. Patrick J. Sinko’s lab in 2013 as part of the PharmD/PhD Dual Degree Program. His research is focused on receptor-mediated delivery of nanoparticles in HIV and breast cancer. Besides research, he loves spending time with his wife Rachel and their dog Jjang.”
My current research interests involve improving our understanding of CNS related disposition through the utility of PKPD modeling and simulation efforts. When I am not in the lab working I am usually spending my time unwinding with a good book, cooking a warm meal and finding concerts of my favorite artists to attend.
