MSI PIs Named Distinguished McKnight University Professors

The Office of the Provost and the Graduate School has named the 2008 recipients of Distinguished McKnight University Professorships. Two MSI Principal Investigators are on this list:

  • Professor Judith Berman (Department of Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development)
  • Professor Jeffrey J. Derby (Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and MSI Fellow)

These professorships recognize outstanding mid-career faculty members. The recipients receive a monetary grant and the title Distinguished McKnight University Professor, which they will hold as long as they are at the University of Minnesota.
