Tzong-Shyuan Lee serves as a Professor at the Department of Physiology, National Yang Ming University, Taipei, Taiwan. He also received a Ph.D. degree in 2002, from the National Defense University, Taipei, Taiwan. His areas of expertise include pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases and physiology of vascular cells. Lee is interested in the molecular mechanism of early-stage atherosclerosis including endothelial dysfunction and the formation of macrophage foam cells in recent years. By use of clinical therapeutic reagents, food nutrition, and traditional herbal medicine in vitro and in vivo, his team has discovered several crucial molecules and important molecular mechanisms in the promotion of endothelial function and cholesterol clearance of macrophages.
