Joshua Levin's Biography

Joshua Levin, Senior Scientist/Group Leader, The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

Joshua Levin is a senior scientist and group leader in the Broad Institute’s Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research, as well as in the Klarman Cell Observatory at the Broad Institute. He has developed and comprehensively evaluated a broad portfolio of RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) methods such as targeted, strand-specific, total, and low-input RNA-Seq protocols. These RNA-Seq methodologies are being used for a variety of projects institute-wide, notably cancer transcriptomics, single cell studies, and genome annotation. Before joining The Broad, Levin worked for ten years in the biotechnology industry, first at Syngenta (formerly Ciba-Geigy & Novartis) and then at Novartis Pharmaceuticals using model organisms in functional genomics studies.
