Joshua Levin's Biography

Joshua Levin, Senior Group Leader, Research Scientist, Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research, Klarman Cell Observatory, The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard

Joshua Levin is a senior group leader and research scientist in the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard’s Stanley Center for Psychiatric Research, as well as in the Klarman Cell Observatory. In his research, he uses transcriptomic approaches to improve our understanding of brain function as it relates to psychiatric disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. During his time at the Broad Institute, he has developed and comprehensively evaluated an extensive 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 Institute in 2007, Levin worked for ten years in the biotechnology industry, first at Syngenta (formerly Ciba-Geigy and Novartis) and later at Novartis Pharmaceuticals using model organisms in functional genomics studies.
