With deep sadness, we announce the death of Alies Muskin, ADAA Executive Director, on September 22, 2015, of complications of breast cancer. Her commitment to improving the lives of affected individuals extended to ensuring that over the years ADAA supported numerous research projects from young and established investigators. She worked tirelessly to promote scientific innovation, encourage translation and implementation of research into practice, and provide continuing education of evidence-based treatments across disciplines. You can honor her memory.
