Robert Levitan, PhD

Dr. Robert Levitan is a clinical researcher and an expert on atypical subtypes of mood disorders characterized by depressed mood, increased eating behaviour and obesity. Dr. Levitan integrates clinical research in adults with early developmental research focused on the early origins of disease.

This includes novel methodologies emerging from the rapidly evolving field of socio-biology, which focuses on the interplay of nature and nurture. A better understanding of the complexity inherent in these disorders will lead to new prevention strategies and treatment approaches.
