Genomic lab lures Harvard researcher

Published May 24. 2013 4:00AM

A Harvard University genetics expert has been named director of Farmington's Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.

World-renowned scientist Charles Lee, best known for a genetic discovery involving a state known as copy-number variation, currently directs the molecular genetics research unit at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the cytogenetics facility for the Harvard Cancer Center in Boston. Lee's awards include the 2008 Ho-Am Prize in Medicine, Korea's version of the Nobel Prize. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

"We are attracting the top minds to Connecticut," Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said in hailing Lee's appointment.
