Dr. Gilbert A. Leveille (1934-2019)
It is with great sadness that I share Dr. Gilbert (Gil) A. Leveille, former nutritional biochemistry professor and friend of the Division of Nutritional Sciences (DNS), passed away on August 8 in Frederick, Maryland. He was 85 years old.
Gil began his academic career in 1965 at the University of Illinois in the Department of Animal Sciences. He was instrumental in the creation of DNS, and later served on the DNS external advisory committee for many years. Throughout his career, he held several positions in nutritional sciences. In 1996, Gil founded Leveille Associates, which provides consulting services to the food industry.
Gil was a great mentor, friend, and an influential leader in nutritional sciences. He will be greatly missed.
