Solve said:Susan M. Levine, M.D., graduated from Albert Einstein School of Medicine in 1981 and completed a residency in Internal Medicine at Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx followed by two fellowships in Infectious Diseases and Allergy and Immunology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Mount Sinai Hospital, respectively.
During her second fellowship while working with Dr. Charlotte Cunningham-Rundles—one of the co-authors of the original case definition of ME/CFS—Dr. Levine became intrigued with seeing her first few ME/CFS patients who sought a diagnosis. She examined natural killer cell function and abnormalities in catecholamine response in these patients and then opened a private practice to provide medical support to a growing ME/CFS population in the New York and New Jersey area.
Over the last two decades, Dr. Levine has collaborated with other clinicians and researchers, co-authored a “Manual for Physicians,” a primer for internists about the care of ME/CFS patients, and is currently serving on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Advisory Committee. She remains committed to seeking better treatments for ME/CFS patients and to collaborating with like-minded scientists to gain a better understanding of this illness.
