My Approach

Dr. Rebecca Levy is an Instructor in Neurology at Stanford University. Dr. Levy studied neurobiology at Yale University and then completed her M.D. and Ph.D. at Columbia University with research on the neuroscience of schizophrenia and neurometabolic disorders. She transitioned to Stanford University for clinical training in the combined Child Neurology residency followed by Medical Genetics fellowship in order to become a neurogeneticist. Her research includes use of three-dimensional, human-induced pluripotent stem cell-derived neural organoids to model early neurodevelopment, as well as clinical projects on phenotypes of rare neurogenetic disorders. Her goal is to diagnose individuals in her clinic, study the underlying pathways of the disorders in her lab, and translate that research into novel treatment approaches.

When not at the lab or the hospital, Dr. Levy enjoys skiing, hiking, and cooking with her family.
