Bruce Levy, MD
Dr. Bruce Levy is Chief of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) and on faculty at Harvard Medical School as the Parker B. Francis Professor of Medicine. He is board-certified in critical care medicine and pulmonary disease and has broad interest in ARDS, asthma, bronchiectasis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (now the Perelman School of Medicine). He then completed a residency in internal medicine, a chief medical residency, and a fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine at BWH. His post-doctoral research training was performed in the laboratory of Professor Charles Serhan, who remains a collaborator.
The Levy laboratory’s research on Resolvin E1 in ARDS and asthma models laid the foundation for Thetis’ TP-317 program. Dr. Levy’s laboratory continues to determine new mechanisms and pathways to resolve pulmonary inflammation, infection or injury through the roles of naturally-derived, specialized pro-resolving mediators, and to translate these findings to the pathobiology of important airway diseases. His work has helped lead to more than 175 peer-reviewed publications, over 10 patents awarded or pending, and continuous funding from the National Institutes of Health since 1993. He is an elected member of the ASCI, AAP and Interurban Clinical Club. He is active in the American Thoracic Society and currently serves as Chair of the Publication Policy Committee and member of the Board of Directors.
