Congratulations to the AIM External Advisory Board Member, Beth Levine (beth.levine@utsouthwestern.edu), on successfully renewing her outstanding HHMI-funded research program in the Center for Autophagy Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. She is actively seeking highly motivated scientists to join to study the molecular regulation of autophagy, mechanisms of selective autophagy, and the role of autophagy in physiology and disease. Dr. Levine’s pioneering work in the field of autophagy is exceptional and her contributions to the success of the AIM center are many.
