Dr. Yee earned his undergraduate Credentials from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute before receiving his doctorate from Rice University. His eventual goal is to operate an independent research laboratory in the field of bioengineering with a focus on understanding molecular mechanisms of hemostasis, thrombosis and vascular diseases. Dr. Yee's research project deals with factor VIII and its adhesion to its chaperone protein, von Willebrand factor. In these experiments, fragments of von Willebrand factor are screened for optimal factor VIII stabilization. By further studying the architecture of the "Factor VIII-von Willebrand Factor" complex, Dr. Yee seeks to gain insight to improve designs of novel therapeutics.
