BSE Research Professors

About BSE Research Professors

The distinction of BSE Research Professor is a joint appointment between the BSE and one of the School's academic units. The appointments began in 2009 to increase the critical mass of top scientists at the BSE.

The BSE Research Endowment is exclusively dedicated to support the Research Professorships. Other funds complement these appointments.
