Randall Lee, PhD, MD

Cardiologist and electrophysiologist

Dr. Randall J. Lee graduated from UCLA Medical School in 1984 where he also obtained his doctorate in pharmacology. After completing an internal medicine residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif., he completed a cardiology fellowship and postdoctoral fellowship in biochemistry and molecular biology at Stanford University, where he earned a Physician Scientist Award and the Upjohn Young Investigator Award in cardiology. Lee subspecialized in cardiac electrophysiology during his second fellowship at UCSF.

His research focuses on cellular and molecular aspects of cardiac arrhythmias and vascular regeneration. He is investigating the cellular and molecular derangements that occur during cardiac arrhythmias and myocardial infarctions. Lee uses genetic engineering techniques to investigate derangements during cardiac arrhythmias and myocardial infarctions and as possible therapeutic tools. Lee also is interested in cardiac development of the conduction system and the means to alter conduction, which then may be applied to diseased states.
