Chung-Han Lee, MD, PhD

About Me

I am a medical oncologist that specializes in the care of people with genitourinary malignancies, including kidney, bladder, and prostate cancer. As part of a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and medical oncologists, I strive to provide the optimal care for each patient’s unique situation. In addition to standard-of-care options, our team enables patients to participate in promising and innovative clinical trials as additional options for clinical care.

My primary research interests include the development of novel agents and treatment strategies for genitourinary malignancies, especially kidney cancer. As a physician-scientist, I am also an active member of the Translational Kidney Cancer Research Program at MSK and closely collaborate with translational and basic science researchers in MSK’s Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program. My laboratory research focuses on identifying novel pathways that may be involved in pathogenesis and developing better biomarkers to predict response to therapy.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
