Viet Lê

Viet Lê has two Bachelors: (Hon) Integrated Life Sciences in Microbiology and Neurosciences, and Computer Sciences from the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
Viet founded a bioinformatics company in 2002 that developed the software to visualize the 3D protein structures from the Hepatitis-C m-RNA strand with active sites for drug-protein modeling.

Working with Dr. Roger Ng, Dr. Shari Ling, and the National Institute of Aging within the NIH, he and his team developed software to extract data from hundreds of thousands of DEXA scans from the longest longitudinal aging study in the world. This research led to a better understanding of osteoporosis, bone density, and matrix depletion over time. The technology developed was based on modeling templates of bone outlines and automating bone model augmentation to fit the bones of interest using our proprietary Gaussian edge-detection technique, and deriving bone characteristics from the x-rays.
