Allen Lee graduated from UC San Diego in 2009 with a bachelor of science degree in physiology and neuroscience. At UCSD he pursued an interest in psychology and the brain by minoring in psychology and working with a great team in a psychology laboratory. Through that he had the opportunity to work in clinical and neuropsychological research with Parkinson's disease patients under a neurologist at the VA Medical Hospital. Allen has also done clinical research at the UCSD Medical Center Emergency Department that furthered his passion in medicine.
Allen joined the Memory and Aging Center in July 2010. He helps coordinate for the Chinese participants in the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center's study New Approaches to Dementia Heterogeneity, which longitudinally follows individuals in hopes of developing new ways to improve early detection and clinical care for patients with dementia.
Besides long walks on the beach, Allen enjoys learning new languages and playing all kinds of sports, especially tennis and basketball.
