Levi Wood, Ph.D.
Levi Wood, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Pathology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering at Oregon State University in 2004. He completed three graduate degrees at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: dual M.S. degrees in mechanical and electrical engineering (2008), and a Ph.D. in mechanical engineering (2011). Levi’s area of specialty is identification of predictive computational models from experimental biological data. His current scientific research interests are in combining in vivo, in vitro, and computational models to identify new therapeutic targets for Alzheimer’s disease.
During his Ph.D. work, Levi became aware of the breadth of concerns involved in ensuring that scientific research is conducted and reported responsibly, and sought to become involved in the discussion about how to ensure research integrity. He is currently serving on the National Academies committee to update the 1992 report “Responsible Science: Ensuring the Integrity of the Research Process."
