Professor Bruce Levy, MD

Division Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division, Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Boston, USA

Professor Bruce Levy is the Parker B. Francis Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Chief of the Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Division at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Clinically, he sees outpatients with asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, cough, and long COVID in the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Lung Center and inpatients in the hospital’s medical intensive care unit.

Professor Levy’s Airway Inflammation and Resolution “AIR” laboratory aims to identify new pathways to resolve pulmonary inflammation, infection, or injury by understanding the roles of naturally derived, specialized pro-resolving mediators in health, and then translating these findings to the pathobiology of important lung diseases, including severe asthma.

His work has led to more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, over 10 patents awarded or pending, and continuous funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 1993. He is an active participant in NIH grant review study sections and an elected member of the ASCI, AAP, and Interurban Clinical Club. He is active in the American Thoracic Society and has served in several leadership roles including Chair of the Publication Policy Committee and member of the Board of Directors. Professor Levy is an elected fellow of the American College of Physicians, American Thoracic Society, and European Respiratory Society.


“I have a longstanding interest in exploring the fascinating biology of the airway epithelium and its roles in health and disease.”
