Speaker Bio: Dr. John H. Lee, M.D., is certified by American Board of Otolaryngology and specialized in Head and Neck Cancer. He is Associate Professor at the Sanford Research Institute and the University of South Dakota Medical School at Sioux Falls, SD. Dr. Lee received his formal undergraduate education at Stanford University, his medical degree at the Medical School of the University of Minneapolis, and his clinical training at the University of Iowa ENT residency program. Dr. Lee was also a professor at the University of Iowa. Dr. Lee has been studying the link between the human papilloma virus (HPV) and the development of head and neck cancer at both the preclinical and clinical levels. His research aims at understanding how HPV genes alter cell growth signaling to allow invasive growth and how the immune response during therapy contributes to clearance of HPV-related cancer. He has published more than 40 original research papers and book chapters and has been honored in 2010 by the American Cancer Society for his research.
