Biography

Dr Sophie Lee graduated from the University of Auckland with her Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery in 2000.

She worked in New Zealand before beginning her haematology training at Auckland City and Middlemore Hospitals in Auckland. Dr Lee achieved her Fellowship of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia in 2011.  She is dual-trained and also holds Fellowship of Royal Australasian College of Physicians.

The same year she won the Leukaemia Foundation PhD scholarship, and went on to investigate the role of DLK1, a signalling molecule thought to be involved in acute leukaemia and regulation of haematopoietic stem cells at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute with Professor Andrew Roberts.  Her work has been submitted as a PhD thesis to Melbourne University and is to be published in peer-reviewed journals.   

Dr Lee has worked as a clinical haematologist in Australia at Box Hill Hospital, Sunshine hospital and Melton Health and she joined Dorevitch Pathology in 2016. Her passion has always been about high quality patient care and hopes one day to make a discovery that may contribute to better treatment of haematological malignancies.
