What is WIA?

Women in Autophagy (WIA) is an international network founded to continue Prof. Beth Levine's dedication to scientific research and mentoring in autophagy. Our network is built to empower women and other under-represented gender identities in the field of autophagy and in the many biomedical ramifications of this area of research. WIA is a volunteer-run initiative that accepts members from any gender, nationality and career stage interested in reversing underrepresentation in the scientific space.
