Gilbert S. Omenn, M.D., Ph.D., will deliver a lecture as part of his Distinguished University Professorship (DUP) at 4 p.m. March 28 in the amphitheater of the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
Omenn, also a professor of computational medicine and bioinformatics, internal medicine, and human genetics in the Medical School, received one of the university’s top honors when he was named the Harold T. Shapiro Distinguished University Professor of Medicine in 2015. Recently appointed DUPs typically offer an inaugural lecture during the first or second full year of their appointments.
Established in 1947, DUPs recognize professors for exceptional scholarly or creative achievement, national and international reputation, and superior teaching skills. Each professorship bears a name determined by the appointive professor in consultation with her or his dean. Recipients receive an annual salary supplement of $5,000 and an annual research supplement of $5,000.
Lecture dates for six other DUPs also were announced.
