Dr. Levin is a Board Certified Cardiac Anesthesiologist, Board Certified Clinical Informaticist, Director of Research Informatics for the Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative & Pain Medicine, and Director of the Clinical Data Science Team for the Mount Sinai Health System. He also holds a joint appointment in the Department of Genetics and Genomics Sciences and collaborates with the Icahn Institute for Data Science and Genomic Technology. Dr. Levin began his career by working for five years in Silicon Valley and the software industry during the dot-com boom. He then changed careers to pursue medicine, but never lost his passion for technology. Dr. Levin is excited to be bringing the latest innovations in systems architecture, machine learning into the healthcare arena in order to improve patient care and save lives. He created and directs the Department of Anesthesiology's large perioperative data warehouse, which contains detailed demographic, physiologic, and medication data for over 900,000 anesthetic cases. As Director of the Health System Clinical Data Science Team, he has led the initiative to build a streaming data science pipeline that enables the deployment of real-time machine learning algorithms to provide next-generation decision support and alerting to front line clinicians.
During the COVID-19 crisis Dr. Levin has led a multi-disciplinary group to drive innovation in ventilators, data science, and operations.
Dr. Levin's clinical research interest prior to the COVID-19 pandemic was in understanding risk factors for morbidity and mortality in perioperative period, with particular focus on intraoperative physiology and hemodynamics. He has published extensively in this area. In 2015 he was awarded a prestigious two year starter grant from the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists to investigate the Genomics of Vasoplegia, a condition of profound, persistent hypotension sometimes seen after cardiopulmonary bypass. Dr. Levin's 2014 article "Low intraoperative tidal volume ventilation with minimal PEEP is associated with increased mortality" was recently recognized as the most cited article from 2013-2014 in the British Journal of Anaesthesia, contributing to the BJA's increase in impact factor to 5.616.Google Scholar ResearchGate

Starter Grant - Genomics of Vasoplegia
Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists (SCA)
A two year award to study the genomics of vasoplegia (profound hypotension) in cardiac surgical patients. The SCA Starter Grant is awarded to promising young Investigators who are within 5 years of finishing training.
Dr. Levin is investigating the genomic basis of vasoplegia - a state of profound, refractory hypotension often seen in patients undergoing cardiac surgery.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr.Levin did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2019 and/or 2020: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
