Edward W. Lee, MD, PhD, MSc is Awarded the Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award
University of California Los Angeles, Department of Radiology in conjunction with the Society of Interventional Radiology Foundation are proud to announce Edward W. Lee, MD, PhD, MSc, as the recipient of the 2012 Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award.
The Dr. Gary J. Becker Young Investigator Award was established as a way to recognize promising young practitioners of interventional medicine early in their careers and encourage their pursuit of academic careers. This award honors the founding editor of the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (JVIR) by recognizing the importance of the young investigator in developing the interventional solutions for the future.
Dr. Lee's manuscript entitled, "Electron Microscopic Demonstration and Evaluation of Irreversible Electroporation-induced Nanopores on Hepatocyte Membranes," was chosen as the best fit model of promoting academic research among young interventional radiologists. We commend his dedication to research and congratulate him for his contribution to evolving medicine.
