Amy H. Lee Assistant Professor Simon Fraser University

Dr. Lee joined the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University as an Assistant Professor in 2020. She completed her PhD at the Department of Cell and Systems Biology at University of Toronto with Drs. David Guttman and Darrell Desveaux, studying the evolutionary arms race during host-pathogen interaction. She then moved to University of British Columbia (UBC) to a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Corey Nislow, where she used comparative bacterial genomics and phenomics to understand how bacterial pathogens adapt to cause persistent long-term infections. This was followed by a productive 3-year postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Bob Hancock at UBC applying systems immunology and vaccinology to understand neonatal immune development. Her currently research uses systems biology approaches to improve neonatal sepsis diagnostics and combat antimicrobial resistance.
