Han S. Lee, MD, PhD

Research and Clinical Interests

My clinical activities include general surgical pathology and cytopathology practice at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. My subspecialty interest is in neuropathology, and I contribute to the surgical neuropathology, muscle/nerve biopsy and autopsy neuropathology services at both Moffitt-Long hospital and the VA Medical Center.

My research interests include identifying markers useful for the diagnosis of certain skeletal muscle diseases, such as those involving autophagic vacuoles. I am also interested in studying potential modifiers of neurodegenerative disease using archival human tissues.
