Daniel Levey

I am currently a fifth year student in the Medical Neuroscience program.  I'm working in the lab of Dr. Alexander Niculescu, discovering and developing peripheral biomarkers for psychiatric states and traits.  The goal is improved nosology and better understanding and personalized treatment for psychiatric medicine.

Year in Program: 5

Faculty Mentor: Alexander Niculescu, M.D., Ph.D.
