Robert Levine, M.D., receives award for service to young physicians and scientists

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Robert A. Levine, M.D., professor of medicine in the Division of Gastroenterology at SUNY Upstate Medical University, has received the 2007 Mentors Research Scholar Award from The American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Foundation for Digestive Health and Nutrition for his exemplary contributions to gastroenterology through mentoring.

Levine will accept the award May 20 at the American Gastroenterological Association Meeting in Washington, D.C. The award will be permanently endowed in his name and the names of his fellow honorees.

The AGA Mentor honorees are a select group of individuals who have performed meritorious service as mentors to the world’s gastroenterology trainees. They provide the guidance necessary to ensure that young gastroenterologists and scientists throughout the nation and around the globe are ready to research, diagnose and treat gastroenterological diseases.

Levine, a resident of Fayetteville, has published 96 peer-reviewed papers, featured in prestigious journals, including Nature and Proceedings of the Society of Experimental Biology of Medicine and has trained 44 fellows throughout his career.

The AGA is one of the oldest medical-specialty societies in the United States whose more than 16,000 members include physicians and scientists who research, diagnose and treat disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.
