Professor Hsinyu Lee, advisor on cell biology and molecular biology
Prof. Hsinyu Lee is currently a full professor at Department of Life Science, and director of Center for Biotechnology, National Taiwan University. His research interest is to investigate the effects of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) in endothelial cells. Since 2004, he has demonstrated that Lysophospholipids (LPLs) are important regulators for inflammation processes. His most recent findings suggested that LPA is also an important regulator for lymphatic vessel and red blood cell development. These results strongly suggested that LPLs might be important regulators for cancer metastasis, tumor development and cancer cell survival. He published 24 related papers in the past three years. He received several Excellence Teaching Awards from National Taiwan University and also from the Department of Education, ROC for his contribution in general education in NTU.
