Tsung-Ling Lee is an Associate Professor of Law at the Institute of Health and Biotechnology Law, Taipei Medical University in Taiwan. She is a legal scholar and interdisciplinary researcher who focuses on global health law. Her research areas encompass the interplay between international and domestic law in relation to contemporary health issues, the geopolitical implications that underpin the research, dissemination, and oversight of biotechnology, and the examination of legal rules to understand the role of international organizations in global health.
Her current research project focuses on accountability and the role of law in advancing biotechnologies. This includes examining how law, human rights, (bio)ethics, and markets—both individually and in combination—contribute to the transformation of democratic societies into sustainable bio-economies. The interdisciplinary study also explores "informal rulemaking" as part of facilitating transnational cooperation amongst the relevant actors.
