Several faculty members at the University of Rochester were appointed to named professorships in the first half of 2022. An honor designed to recognize the national stature of a professor’s work, the named positions are part of a long-standing tradition to celebrate the work of Rochester’s faculty as researchers, scholars, and teachers. Appointments included Danielle Benoit, a professor of biomedical engineering, jointly appointed as the William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor.
