As a Distinguished University Professor, Dr. Le contributes to Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Department of Public Health Sciences, and Department of Chemistry, University of Alberta. He is Director of the Analytical and Environmental Toxicology Division. He is also a Guest Professor of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Peking University, Wuhan University, and Zhejiang University. Dr. Le is an Associate Editor for Analytical Chemistry, Associate Editor for Environmental Health Perspectives, and Editor-in-Chief for Journal of Environmental Sciences.

Dr. Le's group actively pursues research involving bioanalytical chemistry and environmental health sciences. Current projects include (i) analytical techniques and assays for molecules of environmental and biological significance; (ii) arsenic speciation, exposure, metabolism, and health effects; (iii) DNA damage and protein biomarkers; (iv) environmental health; and (v) water and food safety. The ultrasensitive techniques and assays enable studies of the environment and human health. This group enjoys extensive collaborations with multidisciplinary research groups both on campus and internationally.
