Wei Receives NSF Grant to Study Membrane Protein Oligomerization

Dr. Yinan Wei, associate professor of chemistry at the University of Kentucky, has received an award to study membrane protein oligomerizations in bilayers. This award, supported by The Chemistry of Life Processes Program in the Chemistry Division of the National Science Foundation, investigates protein-protein interactions in the cell membrane that lead to the assembly of functional protein complexes.

UK Chemistry Researchers Awarded National Science Foundation Grant to Build a Battery Prototype

A team of scientists at the University of Kentucky and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have been awarded a National Science Foundation grant to develop a prototype of a battery utilizing chemical components prepared at UK. Professors Susan Odom and John Anthony (UK Chemistry) synthesized new organic compounds as donors and acceptors for a type of battery called a redox flow battery (RFB), currently of great interest for large-scale energy storage.

Planning Under Uncertainty: The NSF Grant with Josiah Hanna

In the summer of 2014, several undergraduate and graduate students from the College of Arts and Sciences received a grant from the National Science Foundation. This NSF grant gave them the means to pursue research in various fields as they explored their interests and prepared for their potential futures.In this podcast, Josiah Hanna, a recent graduate in Mathematics and Computer Science, tells us about his research interests and the impact that the NSF grant will have upon his future.

Department of Mathematics awarded National Science Foundation Grant - "UK at the Half" with Carl Nathe

The Department of Mathematics within the College of Arts and Sciences was recently awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation. In this recent episode of "UK at the Half," which aired on Saturday during the UK vs. Texas A&M game, Nathe speaks with President Eli Capilouto, Elizabeth Lorch, and Peter Perry about how the NSF grant reflects the success of UK's past and ensures that future students will also have opportunities to grow and achieve. "UK at the Half" airs during halftime of each UK football and basketball game broadcast on the radio and is hosted by Carl Nathe of UK Public Relations and Marketing. 

Traveling Light: Gary Ferland

Research at the University of Kentucky expands well beyond campus, and thanks to Physics & Astronomy professor Gary Ferland we have to measure the distance in light years instead of miles.
