Biography

Morgan Levine received a Ph.D. in Gerontology from the University of Southern California in 2015, under Dr. Eileen Crimmins. She then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Human Genetics under Dr. Steve Horvath, at the University of California, Los Angeles. In 2017, Dr. Levine joined the faculty at the Yale School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology. Dr. Levine’s work relies on a multi-disciplinary approach, integrating theories and methods from statistical genetics, bioinformatics, demography, and epidemiology. In general, her research focuses on 1) the quantification of biological aging, 2) identifying the genetic mechanisms, which give rise to differential rates of aging in humans; and 3) conceptualizing the biological pathways through which social environment “gets under the skin” and contributes to health disparities.
