Roy C. Levitt

Roy C. Levitt, M.D., professor of anesthesiology and director of translational research and academic affairs, and statistical geneticist


Dr. Levitt is a neuroanesthesiologist, pain physician, and geneticist who is well versed in translational research, genomic approaches and product development. He has led projects to develop mouse models and characterize mechanisms of susceptibility to complex phenotypes and parallel human studies on conditions including neuromuscular diseases, asthma, COPD, and persistent pain. He worked for nearly 12 years in industry, leading a multi-disciplinary team in target validation and the development of novel therapeutics, one of which reached late Phase 2 (MEDI-528 neutralizing IL9 antibody) as a treatment for asthma. Dr. Levitt has authored or co-authored over 95 peer-reviewed publications, over 25 patent applications, 14 clinical protocols (Phase I-IV), and selected clinical, nonclinical, and CM&C sections of IND and NDA filings. He has also been granted 22 patents. For the last five years, Dr. Levitt’s work has focused on the genetics of susceptibility to chronic pain, including chronic post-surgical pain. Currently, he is vice president of the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) Special Interest Group (SIG) on Genetics and Pain, and led a group that received an award from IASP to organize and run the 10th IASP Research Symposium on Pain Genetics in February 2012. Since joining the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, he has established and managed the pain research group as part of the Division of Translational Research at the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Medicine, and Pain Management.
