I am a transplant nephrologist and an Assistant Attending at New York Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical Center since 2013. I strive to provide excellent care to patients with kidney disease as well as kidney transplant recipients.

I am also an academic physician scientist with expertise in translational microbiome research studies. Since 2016, I am currently funded by a K23 career development award from the NIH / NIAID. My laboratory's current focus is establishing the relationship between the microbiome and complications in patients with kidney disease as well as kidney transplant recipients. I have pioneered work in establishing the relationship between the gut microbiota and post-transplant diarrhea as well as the relationship between the gut microbiota and urinary tract infections (Lee et al., Transplantation 96(8): 732-738, 2013). I have also investigated the relationship between the gut microbiota and tacrolimus dosing requirements (Lee et al., PLOS ONE 10(3):e0122399, 2015). I have expanded my research profile to include investigations of the urine microbiota in kidney transplant recipients and the peritoneal fluid microbiota in patients on peritoneal dialysis.
