Health, medicine

Brandon Levy is a Health Communications Specialist for the NIH’s Intramural Research Program, where he works to increase the Intramural Research Program’s public profile. He particularly enjoys writing about the cutting-edge research performed at NIH, but also produces videos, podcasts, and content for social media. Before joining the IRP, he worked as a science writer in the NIH’s National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and as a postbaccalaureate Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) fellow in the NIH’s National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), spending his days putting people inside giant magnets and sending magnetic waves into their brains to shed light on the mysteries of learning and memory. When he’s not hunched over a computer keyboard, Brandon enjoys singing in his acapella group, reading, honing his skills as an amateur chef, and over-obsessing about college basketball. You can find his work right over here.
