Minwoo Lee

Minwoo Lee is a biological anthropologist and neuroscientist interested in what makes humans (not) unique. His research has centered around the genetic and neural mechanisms underlying altruism in humans, specifically focusing on the neuropeptide oxytocin and how it interacts with social contexts to modulate various forms of prosocial behaviors. Engaging diverse groups of primary caregivers, he aims to explore ways to make altruism less costly and more accessible at both individual – and community levels to promote the sustained cycle of caregiving, health, and well-being.
