Kai‐Fai Lee received his Ph.D. degree in biochemistry from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong, in 1995. Then, he got his postdoctoral training on prostate cancer research at the Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA. Later, he came back to Hong Kong and joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Hong Kong as a Research Assistant Professor, in 1998. He was promoted to an Assistant Professor and Associate Professor, in 2001 and 2008, respectively. His primary research interest is reproductive biology, where he is specialized in embryo‐maternal interactions and endometrial receptivity. Since Lee joined the university, he used molecular approach and animal models to study how gametes/embryos interact with the female reproductive tract for better preimplantation embryo development. He is also interested in understanding how ovarian stimulation affects endometrial gene expression and receptivity. To date, he has published more than 80 peer‐reviewed papers with more than 700 citations in international scientific journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Journal of Biological Chemistry, Lab Invest, Endocrinology, Journal of Cellular Physiology, Fertility and Sterility, Biology of Reproduction, and Human Reproduction.
