Competition and Collaboration (Recorded at Boston Children’s Hospital)
April Levin, MD, PhD
Dr. April Levin is an instructor and attending physician in neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School. She completed her undergraduate work at Brown, Med School at yale, and combined residency at Boston Children’s Hospital. Her clinical work and research focus on management of autism from a child neurology perspective, identifying biomarkers of autism, using information about brain rhythms as measured by EEG. The long-term goal of this research is to find new ways to predict, diagnose, and monitor autism; in the process, I hope to shed light on how the brain works in children with autism.
April is also involved with the Bucharest Early Intervention Project, which examines the effects of institutionalization versus foster care on child development. Her work on this research project has led to involvement in clinical, teaching, and volunteer work in Romanian hospitals and orphanages since 1999.
