Peter Lee Awarded NASA Grant 


Peter Lee, MD,  Awarded  a  Research Grant from the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) 

Peter Lee, MD, PhD, MPH has been awarded a Research Grant from the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA). This grant is entitled “Microgravity sensing in tissue-engineered muscle”. This project is in response of a call from NASA to U.S. institutions of higher education to develop an undergraduate-led Project Team that will fly a science and/or technology payload relevant to NASA strategic goals and objectives on a suborbital reusable launch vehicle. Dr. Lee’s project was considered by the NASA reviewers as “…comprehensive with an excellent approach to mentoring, education, and outreach. There is a high scientific value to NASA clearly linked to strategic goals”. Dr. Lee was recently awarded the prestigious 2016 American College of Surgeons Faculty Research Fellowship. 

Dr. Lee is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Cardiac Surgery. Dr. Lee earned a medical degree and a PhD in pathobiology at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. He also completed a Master of Public Health degree in quantitative methods at the Harvard School of Public Health and a Master of Science degree at the International Space University in Strasbourg, France. He completed a general surgery residency at Tufts University School of Medicine and a cardiothoracic residency at UCLA followed by a transplant fellowship at Stanford. Dr. Lee joined Ohio State in 2013. His clinical interests include heart and lung transplantation and mechanical assist devices. His research interests are in cardiac tissue-engineering and the effects of spaceflight on the heart and cardiovascular system.
