Richard Levenson, MD, FCAP, is Professor and Vice Chair for Strategic Technologies, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, UC Davis, where he develops novel imaging technologies for pathology.
Prof. Levenson received his MD at University of Michigan and pathology training at Washington University, becoming Board-certified in Anatomic Pathology. A faculty position at Duke was followed by appointment at Carnegie Mellon University. He subsequently joined Cambridge Research & Instrumentation (now part of PerkinElmer), becoming VP of Research, before returning to academia.
Prof. Levenson has helped develop multispectral microscopy systems and software for molecular pathology and diagnostics, multispectral and three-dimensional small-animal imaging systems, optical dynamic contrast techniques, orientation-independent birefringence microscopy, and multiplexed ion-beam imaging. He serves on multiple review panels, is section editor for Archives of Pathology and on the editorial board of Laboratory Investigation. Regrettably, he also successfully taught pigeons histopathology and radiology. He is co-founder and interim CEO of MUSE Microscopy, Inc.
