Network's Mission


Beth Levine, 1960-2020


WIA was founded in the Summer of 2020 to carry on Beth Levine's dedication to mentoring, science, and training. Our mission is to promote the careers of trainees and young scientists interested in autophagy through a dynamic and global network of mentors and trainees. WIA provides a platform for targeted mentoring activities and workshops and hosts the Beth Levine's Legacy Annual Symposium. We are entirely volunteer-run.
