My research is focused on health service delivery for individuals living with dementia in rural and remote settings.  In collaboration with rural primary healthcare teams we have designed and implemented interdisciplinary rural primary health care memory clinics for assessment, diagnosis, and ongoing management of dementia. Clinics are operating in four rural communities with another implementing a clinic this fall, with plans to continue scaling up.  We are evaluating patient and family perspectives, impact on quality of life, and impact on use of best practices by health care providers.

Dr. King’s practice is grounded in Indigenous philosophy, with a focus on care for HIV/AIDS, HCV and related conditions, for which First Nation, Inuit, and Métis people bear a disproportionate burden. She is a Principal Investigator on various Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) research grants related to Indigenous people and HIV, HCV and co-infections.
Other research interests include Indigenous wellness and Indigenous research ethics. She is revisioning an Indigenous version of community-based research that is centred on Indigenous ancestral wisdom and lived experience, and Indigenous research philosophies and methodologies. Similarly, she cocreates intervention research that is grounded in Indigenous epistemology, culture and wellness.

The long-term goal of research in the Levin Lab is to better understand the cause of neurodegeneration, a salient feature and cause of permanent disability in progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. For over 20 years, we have studied the function of RNA binding protein heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein A1 (‘A1’), with a focus on ‘M9’. M9 is A1’s nucleocytoplasmic transport domain and is required for transport of A1 between the nucleus and cytoplasm. Using molecular, in vitro and in vivo techniques, we examine potential mechanisms of neurodegeneration in MS resulting from A1 dysfunction caused by mutations within and autoimmunity against M9.

My primary research interest is in Parkinson's disease and other parkinsonian conditions, essential tremor, and dystonia. I am involved in both clinical and basic science research with local, national and international collaborators.  A My major research focus is on clinicopathological correlations including protein, biochemical and genetic analysis with his basic science colleagues. I was trained in frozen brain tissue processing by Dr. Oleh Hornykiewicz in 2000, which has allowed for much more widespread collaborations.

I am currently leading an inter-disciplinary team to design, prototype and validate a novel bronchoscopic biopsy tool. I also collaborate with local and national research groups to advance the field of interventional pulmonary medicine.
Active projects include exploring the use of artificial intelligence in detecting pulmonary malignancy in CT scans, advanced bronchoscopic procedure registry, and literature review to assess quality indicators in bronchoscopic procedures.
I am part of the quality improvement committee within the department of medicine where we promote and plan for quality improvement initiatives.
