Jonghwan Lee is Assistant Professor of School of Engineering and Institute for Brain Science at Brown University. Before joining Brown, he was Instructor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School after completing postdoctoral training in the same institution. He received BS in Physics and PhD in Neural Engineering from Seoul National University, South Korea. His research fields are Neuroengineering and Biomedical Optics. He is a recipient of the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award.
The Lee Lab at Brown focuses on development of optical technologies for label-free, micrometer-resolution, three-dimensional imaging of tissue structures and dynamics, mainly in but not limited to the brain cortex, and dissemination of the technologies for translational research through wide collaboration. In particular, he is interested in developing novel optical methods for label-free, large-scale imaging of neural activity with cellular resolution and applying them toward optical brain-computer interfaces.
