Dr. Terri Weaver, professor of nursing and chair of the biobehavioral and health sciences division at the University of Pennsylvania, has been appointed as the Ellen and Robert Kapito Professor in Nursing Science, effective September 1.

The endowed chair was founded earlier this year to recognize faculty excellence and to provide support for faculty research, particularly in biobehavioral nursing science. It was created in the course of the Where Science Leads campaign to increase faculty endowment. 

Dr. Weaver is a national and international expert in the field of clinical sleep research and the functional consequences of common sleep disorders. In addition, Dr. Weaver is actively engaged in biobehavioral research. She has produced notable disease-specific functional status measures for chronic pulmonary disorders and sleep disorders.
