Wing-Hin Lee

Wing-Hin Lee has been awarded the inaugural Woolcock ECR grant. Wing will receive $10,000 as seed funding to develop a research program within the Respiratory Technology group. The seed funding will support his proposal, entitled ' Inhalable iron oxide nanoparticles for imaging and cancer therapy: from bench to bedside', to develop an advanced nano technology based lung cancer therapy. Wing was one of 6 early career researchers who presented at the Woolcock Think Tank in November 2013 and submitted a grant proposal. The Board of the Woolcock ranked these proposals and awarded Wing the seed funding grant. All the proposals were outstanding and the Research Committee will  work with all the ECRs to develop these projects into potential external funding proposals.
