Richard Lee, MD, PhD

Assistant Physician, Medicine
Massachusetts General Hospital
Boston, Massachusetts

After completing a BS and an MS at Harvard, Dr. Lee then earned an MD and PhD from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in the Bronx, New York. He came to MGH for internal medicine residency training and then completed medical oncology fellowship training through the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/MGH joint program. During that time, he performed basic science research at the Whitehead Institute of MIT. He is board certified in medical oncology.

Clinical interests include prostate cancer, bladder cancer, testicular, penile and genito-urinary cancers, renal cancer, and translational research.

Since joining the staff at MGH, Dr. Lee has been engaged in translational studies of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from peripheral blood, using a new technology developed at MGH. The hope is that this "CTC-Chip" may have clinical usefulness for cancer patients. In addition to seeing patients, Dr. Lee is also interested in clinical trials of new drugs to treat genitourinary cancers.
