LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 19, 2013) — The University of Kentucky College of Engineering will host a free lunch and lecture with Kim Anderson, Gill Eminent Professor in Chemical and Materials Engineering, at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 22.

 

The talk, organized by the Elbert C. Ray eStudio and Tau Beta Pi, will take place in the Raymond Student Commons of the Ralph G. Anderson Building, part of the Engineering Complex on UK's central campus. All students, faculty and staff are invited.

 

Every year, as part of its annual "E-Day" celebrations, the UK College of Engineering brings a notable engineer to campus to speak about the importance of communication skills in their career. Anderson will talk about the cancer research she and her colleagues do at UK. Anderson is working to develop coatings for iron oxide nanoparticles so they can be used to selectively target and destroy tumor cells.  

 

She is director of the UK National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program, of the UK National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program, and of Undergraduate Studies in Chemical Engineering. More infromation is available at http://www.engr.uky.edu/eday/dr-kim-anderson/

 

UK College of Engineering alumnus and chemical engineer Mark Davis, originally scheduled to deliver the talk, was unavailable to travel to Kentucky this week.
