David Walt Named a University Professor

David R. Walt, the Robinson Professor of Chemistry who does groundbreaking work in the biological applications of microwell arrays, has been named a University Professor, a designation currently held by only three other Tufts University faculty members.

The president and provost recommend faculty for University Professorships, which are approved by the Board of Trustees Academic Affairs Committee. The designation is an honor reserved for faculty of unusual scholarly eminence who work across schools and campuses.
