In 2016, Dr. Lee was awarded a research grant from the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA) for his study entitled “Microgravity sensing in tissue engineered muscle.” This project is in response of a call from NASA to U.S. institutions of higher education to develop an undergraduate-led project team that will fly a science and/or technology payload relevant to NASA's strategic goals and objectives on a suborbital reusable launch vehicle. Dr. Lee’s project was considered by the NASA reviewers as “…comprehensive with an excellent approach to mentoring, education and outreach. There is a high scientific value to NASA clearly linked to strategic goals.” Dr. Lee was also awarded the prestigious 2016 American College of Surgeons Faculty Research Fellowship.
