Christopher S. Lee, PhD, RN, FAHA, FAAN, FHFSA is Professor and Associate Dean for Research at the Boston College Connell School of Nursing. His research in heart failure is focused on symptom science and patients’ response to symptoms when they occur. Dr. Lee’s innovative approach to research that he calls “biobehavioral profiling” reflects a deep understanding of biological underpinnings of symptomatology as well as contemporary knowledge of advanced statistical techniques that he employs to disentangle heterogeneous responses to heart failure and its therapies.
