Ms. Siqi Lee MSc
(She, Her, Hers)
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences
Faculty of Medicine
Ms. Lee received her Master of Science Cell and Developmental Biology at the UBC in November 2020. Her areas of expertise are cell and molecular biology, protein expression and cell signalling, neuroinflammation, and retinal networks in age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma. Recently Ms Lee is actively investigating:
- Effects of P2X receptors' pathway activation on retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells' tight junction
- NLRP3 inflammasome and its relationship to retinal ganglion cell death during glaucoma pathogenesis in a mouse model
- Injury triggered therapy for proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR)
Ms. Lee would collaborate with researchers with computational backgrounds. The development of new algorithms to identify signals of biomarkers and quantify the fluorescent intensity is an asset to the research of cell signalling.
Ms. Lee loves hiking. She is a dog person and she loves dogs!
