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.

UK to Host STEM Conference for Middle School Girls on April 29th

A team from the University of Kentucky has received a grant from Kentucky NSF EPSCoR (National Science Foundation Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) for Education and Outreach Activities to fund a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) conference for middle school girls at UK this spring.

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.

For the Birds: Dr. David Westneat Explores What Sparrows Teach Us About Parenting Behavior

David Westneat, professor of biology, has been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation to study how personality and environment affect the parenting behavior of birds.

Research Never Stops: Ribble Undergraduate Summer Internship gives biology students the chance to continue important investigations

Over the summer, biology students Taylor Shackleford and Sarah Whelan – who came to UK to pursue research – were given a unique opportunity to continue their lab work after spring classes came to a close.
