Kanghyun Lee received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in December 2018 under the guidance of Dr. Elizabeth Craig. Dr. Lee’s graduate research was focused on understanding the Hsp70-based molecular chaperone system assisting folding of nascent chains translated by the ribosome.
Dr. Lee joined the Southworth lab in the IND as a postdoctoral scholar in December 2018. He is interested in understanding the interaction between Hsp90 and its cochaperones that are involved in maintaining Tau homeostasis. He uses biochemical tools such as cryo-EM to study the interaction.
