Levy, the world-renowned expert in antibiotic resistance and Professor of Molecular Biology and Microbiology and of Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine, and by Dr. Walter Gilbert, the successful biotechnology entrepreneur and well-known Nobel Prize-winning Professor at Harvard University.
