In 2017, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation established the Andrew J. Lockhart Memorial Prize through support of the family and friends of Andrew J.

The Lockhart Prize is intended to support research that could lead to more effective therapeutic interventions for hard-to-treat cancers like the cancer that took his life.
