Lee is a research fellow at the Centre for Patient-Reported Outcome Research (CPROR), University of Birmingham, UK. His research interests include health-related outcomes, the use of electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePROs), patient public involvement (PPI) in research and routine clinical practice and the optimization of research impact.

Qualifications

  • Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), University of Birmingham,  2019 
  • Masters in Public Health (MPH), University of Birmingham, 2014
  • Masters in Business Administration (MBA), University of Cardiff, 2009
  • Medicine (MBChB), Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria, 2007

Biography

Lee qualified with an MBChB in Medicine and Surgery in 2007 and during his internship developed an interest in management and administration. Upon completion of his internship, he studied Business Administration at Cardiff University. He worked briefly as a manager in the private sector before enrolling for the part-time master in public health programme at the University of Birmingham which he completed in 2014. In 2015, he was awarded the Health Foundation PhD Award in Improvement Science. He commenced his PhD at the University of Birmingham and completed it in 2019. 

Teaching

Lee has served as a small group tutor on Year 1 and 2, under-graduate MBChB programmes within the School of Medical and Dental Sciences (MDS).

Postgraduate supervision

Co-Supervisor for: Aimee Jackson. 'Increasing the use of efficient early phase designs.'

Funder: Medical Research Council (MRC). Part-time PhD studentship (2019-2024).

Research

Lee's research interests include: health-related outcomes; electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePROs); patient public involvement (PPI) in research and routine clinical practice; and the optimization of research impact. His focus is on chronic conditions namely: chronic kidney disease (CKD), inflammatory diseases and rare diseases.

Lee is currently working on an NIHR BRC funded project exploring the use of core outcome sets (which includes PRO measures) in basket trials for inflammatory diseases (POLARISE trial). He is also involved in the PPI work stream of the Midlands Wales Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre (MW-ATTC) advance therapy medicinal products (ATMP) project.

Previous research explored the use of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) to promote quality of care and safety in the management of patients with advanced chronic kidney disease (CKD) in routine clinical practice (PRO-trACK project). He also explored key issues relating to the selection of PROMs, the implementation of ePRO systems, and the interpretation and reporting of PRO data in clinical trials and routine practice.
