In Memoriam: Walt Wilczynski, PhD
June 11, 2020
I am saddened to report that our dear friend and colleague Walt Wilczynski passed away peacefully Tuesday morning in his home in downtown Atlanta. Walt moved to Atlanta in 2012 from the University of Texas at Austin to become the Director for Research for the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience. In addition to his substantial contributions to the CBN, he was the founding Director of the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State. His wisdom and leadership helped make the NI the success it is today. Walt will be remembered for his important scientific and administrative contributions as well as for the tremendous influence he had on the lives of so many of his colleagues, trainees and students. He was undoubtedly one of our most cherished colleagues and he will be sorely missed.
There will be a celebration of Walt's life in Atlanta and in Austin; details will be provided as they become available.
With an extremely heavy heart,
Anne Murphy & Elliott Albers, on behalf of our GSU colleagues
