Dr. Changjoon Justin Lee is a distinguished neuroscientist known for his extensive research in glioscience. With a notable academic background that includes a BA in Chemistry from the University of Chicago and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Neurophysiology from Columbia University, Dr. Lee has held prominent positions at institutions such as the Korea Institute of Science and Technology and Emory University.

His research has significantly advanced our understanding of neuron-glia interactions, astrocyte pathophysiology, and cognitive glioscience.

In this lecture, Dr. Lee will discuss his latest findings on the role of astrocytic hemoglobin in decomposing H2O2, a reactive oxygen species involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and ischemic stroke. His work explores the potential therapeutic applications of targeting astrocytic hemoglobin to mitigate the effects of these diseases.

We cordially invite students, faculty, researchers, and professionals with an interest in neuroscience to attend this lecture.
