2022 Regents' Professorships: Appointments and Reappointments
The Office of the Provost is pleased to announce the appointment and reappointment of the following individuals as Regents’ Professors at Georgia State University:
Didier Merlin, Regents’ Professor, Institute for Biomedical Sciences
- Xiaochun He, Regents’ Professor, Physics and Astronomy/ Computer Science, College of Arts and Sciences

The standards to become a Regents’ Professor are very high. To be eligible for consideration, nominees for the Regents’ Professorship must hold the rank of full Professor, normally for at least 10 years.
Nominees must show sustained, and recent, significant achievement in scholarship with high national (and international, where appropriate) citation and recognition, exceeding what is expected for full Professors.
Regents’ Professors are expected to excel in formal instruction, dissemination of knowledge to national audiences, and to be successful and active in the mentoring of master’s and doctoral degree students.
They must also demonstrate substantial contributions in service to their academic discipline and to Georgia State as a whole, including a sustained record of significant positive involvement in the life of the institution.
Congratulations to our newly appointed and reappointed Regents’ Professors! These scholars join the ranks of other distinguished Georgia State faculty who have been named as Regents’ Professors, and you can find a list of them here. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and applaud this significant achievement.
