The Klerman Prize was established in 1994 by Myrna Weissman, Ph.D., in memory of her husband, Gerald Klerman, M.D., to honor exceptional achievements in clinical research by the NARSAD Young Investigators. Dr. Klerman's distinguished career included innovative research in depression, outstanding teaching and mentoring, with research leadership at Yale University, Harvard Medical School and Cornell University. The Klerman Prize Committee is comprised of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation Scientific Council members with expertise in clinical research. Each year, the committee selects the winner(s) and honorable mention(s) in the spring, and the honorees are subsequently invited to attend an awards ceremony in New York City in July 2015.
