Professor Lee is an expert in developmental and stem cell biology. He is interested in the application of novel small molecules to reprogramme somatic cells into stem cells and the role of small molecules that specifically direct the differentiation of stem cells. Professor Lee is also known for his work on a gene called BRE in cancer and embryo development.

In his lecture, he will reveal the power of using social media and blogging real-time experiments to expose high profile fraudulent stem cell research. He will also discuss whether open peer review is the revolutionary way forward for publishing research.
