Randall Lee


Cardiologist and electrophysiologist

About me

Dr. Randall Lee is a cardiologist and electrophysiologist whose research focuses on cardiac arrhythmias and vascular regeneration.

Lee is investigating the derangement that occurs at the cellular and molecular levels during cardiac arrhythmias and myocardial infarctions (heart attacks). He uses genetic engineering techniques to understand these derangements and also explores the techniques as possible therapeutic tools. In addition, he is interested in development of the heart's electrical conduction system (fibers and muscle cells that produce contractions) and the means to alter conduction, which then may be applied to treating diseased states.

Lee earned his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, where he also obtained a doctorate in pharmacology. After completing a residency in internal medicine at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, he completed a cardiology fellowship and postdoctoral fellowship in biochemistry and molecular biology at Stanford University, where he earned physician-scientist and young investigator awards in cardiology. During a second fellowship at UCSF, he subspecialized in cardiac electrophysiology, the study of heart rhythm disorders.
