I am a clinically-oriented diagnostic physician with clinical expertise in the pathologic diagnosis of hematologic cancers including tumors of the bone marrow, lymphoid tissue, spleen and pre-malignant hematologic conditions. Another area of interest is blood cancer classification with molecular and genetic profiling. In my research program, we focus on molecular mechanisms of tumor progression, cell-of-origin, biomarkers, and novel therapeutic strategies in lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia. In addition to patient care and translational research, medical education and scientific communication are also part of interest. Many residents, fellows, graduates and postdocs have worked and been trained in our program. We perform comprehensive clinical and research functions that include bone marrow, lymphoma pathology, clinical flow cytometry, cytogenetics, molecular diagnostics and outside services. We provide diagnostic consultation services and relevant specialized testing for patients with various types of acute and chronic leukemia, lymphoma and benign hematologic disorders. I am specialized in the diagnosis of hematological disorders, including acute and chronic leukemias, myelodysplastic syndromes, myeloproliferative neoplasms, B and T-cell lymphomas, Hodgkin lymphoma, cutaneous and orbital lymphomas and benign bone marrow and lymph node disorders.

Chien-Chang Lee, MD, ScD, is associate professor of emergency medicine at the National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH). He severed as the deputy secretary general of Taiwan Society of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, and deputy director of intelligent healthcare in NTUH. Dr. Lee is graduated from Harvard University and earned a doctoral degree in pharmacoepidemiology. Dr. Lee runs a Health Data Science lab, which consisted of 50 native or international students and research fellows around the world. Dr. Lee’s lab has rich experiences in evaluating the clinical value of new diagnostic tests. He pioneered in this field by introducing several new biomarkers and point-of-care multiplex PCR systems in Taiwan’s EM practice. He is also engaged in the development of artificial intelligence algorithm for decision support in the complicated environment of emergency medicine.
One of the most impactful findings of the lab is the discovery of the fatal cardiovascular complications, aortic dissection or aortic aneurysm rupture, associated with use of fluoquinolone antibiotics. Dr. Lee has extensive publications on infectious disease and epidemiology in several prestigious journals. His work also caused Food and Drug Administration of US to change the global fluoquinolone prescription guideline. Based on Dr. Lee’s work, the FDA recommends against the use of fluoquinolone in elderly patients with hypertension or peripheral vascular disease, or congenital collagen defect such as Marfan or Ehlers-Danos syndrome, unless there are no alternative antibiotics choices. The new guideline is expected to prevent thousands of incident aortic dissection or aortic aneurysm ruptures in the US alone. To date, professor Lee has published more than 180 scientific papers with more than 6000 citations (H-index 44).
