To Prospective AIMS Lab members

Prof. Lee receives a large volume of emails asking about how to join the AIMS Lab. If you are a student who wants to be admitted to the Allen School, please check out our website. If you're already admitted to our PhD program, the MSTP (MD/PhD) program, or others, or if you want to join as a postdoctoral researcher in the Lee Lab, please do the followings before contacting Prof. Lee: please watch Prof. Lee's Science in Medicine talk, AI seminar, or the CGWI talk (selected as the best talk at CGWI 2018), read our Research page, and read some of our papers on the projects that interest you. Please also sign up for CSE 527, which is generally required to officially join the lab because you will learn the knowledge needed to do research.
