Waletzky's parents, psychiatrists active in drug abuse treatment, formed a memorial foundation that established the $25,000 award. The goal of the Waletzky Award is to encourage innovative research into the neurobiology of drug addiction and alcoholism. This year's recipient will be announced at this event.
