UT Southwestern scientist honored among best in Texas research
Date:1/10/2008

DALLAS Jan. 10, 2008 Dr. Beth Levine, chief of infectious diseases at UT Southwestern Medical Center, was recognized today as one of the states top rising stars in research by The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST).

Dr. Levine was named a recipient of one of four Edith and Peter ODonnell Awards by the academy at its annual conference in Houston. Each year, the awards honor researchers in science, medicine, engineering and technology innovation whose work seems destined for international prominence at the highest level. Each ODonnell Award consists of a $25,000 honorarium, a citation and an inscribed statue.

Dr. Levine received the award for medicine. Holder of the Jay P. Sanford Professorship in Infectious Diseases, she is a renowned specialist in the study of autophagy, the process by which cellular components are broken down to ensure optimal function.

Other 2008 ODonnell Award recipients are Dr. Jennifer West of Rice University, for engineering; Dr. Edward Marcotte of UT Austin, for science; and Sameer Penharkar of Dallas-based Texas Instruments, for technology innovation.

Dr. Levines groundbreaking work has lead to new insights that have propelled forward many lines of medical research, including cancer, Alzheimers disease and infectious diseases, said Dr. Kern Wildenthal, president of UT Southwestern. She is one of the finest researchers in Texas and in the nation. This award recognizes her accomplishments and highlights UT Southwesterns continuing success in providing a nurturing environment for the best and brightest investigators.

The awards, first given in 2006, were named by TAMEST to honor two of the Lone Star States most generous and far-sighted supporters of medical, engineering and scientific research and education. Previous UT Southwestern recipients of the award are: Dr. Michael Rosen, professor of biochemistry, who received the inaugural award for science in 2006; Dr
