Sad for the loss of Dr. Beth Levine. Her pioneering discoveries on autophagy advanced many fields, including brain diseases. Thoughts are with Dr. Milton Packer and her family. https://t.co/0lc8jyllyl

I am deeply saddened by the loss of colleague Beth Levine, who inspired me from the first time we met at my recruitment to UTSW. She was deeply supportive of me and my trainees, a generosity on par with her world class science. I am humbled and grateful to have known her. https://t.co/sjoC84H4DR
