Dr. Weiss’ current research interests include the multidisciplinary areas of tissue engineering and MEMS-based chemical and biological sensors. In the area of tissue engineering, Dr. Weiss applies inkjet deposition technologies to create 2D and 3D engineered patterns of hormones and native extracellular matrix materials in order to study biological patterning and to deliver these patterns as clinically-relevant therapies. He also uses inkjet deposition to manufacture chemical sensors by selectively depositing chemically sensitive polymers with MEMS-based transducers. Dr. Weiss’ research involves collaborations with faculty from The Robotics Institute, The Carnegie Institute of Technology, and The Mellon College of Sciences.

Lee received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1972 from The University of Pittsburgh, M.S. in Bioengineering in 1976 from Carnegie Mellon University, and Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1984 from Carnegie Mellon University.
