UT Southwestern's Dr. Beth Levine receives 2014 Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award
Date:1/22/2014

DALLAS Jan. 22, 2014 Dr. Beth Levine, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator and Director of the Center for Autophagy Research at UT Southwestern Medical Center, has received the 2014 Stanley J. Korsmeyer Award from the American Society for Clinical Investigation (ASCI).

The award recognizes Dr. Levine's fundamental contributions to the understanding of autophagy literally, "self-eating" a housecleaning process in which cells destroy damaged proteins and organelles.

Each year, the award recognizes the outstanding achievements of ASCI members in advancing knowledge in a specific field and in mentoring future scientists. The award is named after the late Dr. Stanley Korsmeyer, an oncologist and researcher who identified key genetic mechanisms that govern cell death and survival. The ASCI, established in 1908, is one of the nation's oldest and most respected medical honor societies and counts more than 3,000 physician-scientists as members.

Last year, Dr. Bruce Beutler, Nobel Laureate and Director of the Center for the Genetics of Host Defense, became the first UT Southwestern faculty member to receive the Korsmeyer Award for his discoveries in innate immunity. Dr. Levine's honor thus marks the second award for a UTSW researcher.

"I am truly honored to receive this award in memory of a great physician-scientist, Stanley Korsmeyer," said Dr. Levine, also Professor of Internal Medicine and Microbiology. "This recognition underscores the importance of autophagy as a crucial pathway in health and disease and thus represents an accomplishment for the entire field of autophagy research."

Inspired by Dr. Korsmeyer's co-discovery of Bcl-2 as a B cell lymphoma oncogene, Dr. Levine began her research career by searching for proteins that interacted wi
