Jin-Moo Lee is the Andrew B. & Gretchen P. Jones Professor of Neurology and Chair for the Department of Neurology. He received his MD and PhD at Weill Cornell Medical College. After medical school he completed a Neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania. He then came to Washington University where he completed a Vascular Neurology clinical fellowship followed by a post-doctoral research fellowship. He has served as a chair or board member on multiple national and international stroke associations.

Lee is active in both clinical work and research. His clinic focuses on patients with genetic causes of stroke. Similarly, his research interests center on the genetics of stroke. His lab focuses on targets in stroke that may mitigate brain injury and help with brain repair.
