Byung-Heon Lee Byung-Heon Lee is currently an Assistant Professor in Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, School of Medicine, Kyungpook National University (KNU). He received his M.D. license from Korean Medical Association in 1989. He received his B.S. from School of Medicine, KNU in 1989, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Biochemistry from KNU in 1991 and 1995. He was an Assistant Professor in School of Medicine at Dongguk University in 1996-2001 and a Visiting Investigator in The Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, USA in 2001-2003. He joined KNU in 2003.

He is currently a member of Korean Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, the American Association for Cancer Research, and the American Society of Molecular Imaging.

His main research interest is “discovery of tissue-specific homing peptides using phage display and their applications to molecular imaging and targeted therapy”. He is currently carrying out projects for the identification of homing peptides to tumor and atherosclerotic plaque and of phosphatidylserine- and blood clotting factor XIIIa-specific peptide ligands.

Byung-Heon Lee has published over 30 peer-reviewed papers, 1 book chapter, and 1 review article. He has also filed 4 patents.
