Date:11/3/2010

Irvine, Calif., Nov. 3, 2010 The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has appointed Thay Q. Lee, Ph.D., senior research career scientist the highest honor it bestows on scientists.

Lee, professor and vice chairman for research in UC Irvine's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, will receive $1.4 million to support his research and the Orthopaedic Biomechanics Lab at the Long Beach VA Medical Center.

"Dr. Lee is one of the world's foremost orthopedic biomedical engineers," said Dr. Ranjan Gupta, chair of UCI's Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. "His research on the biomechanics of the knee and shoulder has resulted in improved quality of life for injured veterans and others."

Lee is conducting a study to better understand the biomechanics of flexing and kneeling. "Both movements are limited after total knee arthroplasty, or knee replacement," he said. "We will evaluate different surgical approaches to TKA with the goal of minimizing adverse effects on kneeling and improving quality of life for veterans and others who undergo knee replacement."

The VA's Research Career Development Program was created to support postdoctoral, nonclinical, independent investigators. Those who have held Research Career Scientist appointments for at least five years are eligible for the senior-level awards, which recognize VA health services researchers who are international leaders in their field.

Each senior research career scientist is selected through peer review and is expected to have a successful history as a principal investigator on projects funded by the VA or other national agencies, a strong publications record, professional recognition and involvement, and an active role in teaching and mentoring other scientists.

For the past two decades, Lee's research has focused on the biomechanics of the shoulder and knee. Having written more than 130 peer-reviewed manuscripts and 290 abstracts, Lee has made continuing contributio
