Research Background

Dr. Levine is a board-certified pediatric hematologist-oncologist with a goal of curing cancer, one child at a time. In addition to supportive care, she specializes in the treatment of children and adolescents with leukemia. Dr. Levine has a special interest in the effects of chemotherapy on fertility, with a research focus on identifying patients most at risk of impaired fertility so they can be offered fertility-preserving approaches. As the medical ability to treat childhood cancers successfully continues to improve, the Division is seeing more patients growing into adulthood and living productive lives. Dr. Levine directs the team that provides long-term follow-up care for survivors of childhood and adolescent cancers. For those who may not survive, she works to enhance the delivery of palliative care and to improve end-of-life services for patients, as well as the staff members who provide that care.
