Biographical details

Dr. Sammy Lee obtained a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours class I) at the University of Sydney and received his PhD in Vision Science at the University of Melbourne. He was then awarded a NHMRC CJ Martin fellowship and studied developmental neurobiology in the mouse retina at the Univeristy of California Santa Barbara (CA, USA). In 2011, he took a postdoctoral position at the Max Planck Institute for Brain research in Frankfurt, Germany. He returned to Sydney in 2013 to continue the Australian portion of his NHMRC CJ Martin fellowship. He is currently studying neuronal circuitry in human donor eyes using a combination of immunohistochemistry, ballistic labelling, single cell injections, and high resolution confocal microscopy.
