The Story of a 1949 UK Chemistry Graduate

It was 1949, World War II had ended and twice as many students were enrolled in universities across the country compared to pre-war enrollment, many were on the GI Bill. I was one of those June 1949 GI Bill seniors, graduating from UK with a BS degree in physical chemistry. My name is Alan Veith.

Photocatalytic reductions occur in slow time scales

Finding the time scale for the effective transfer of electrons is not an easy task.

Infectious Diseases, Auto-Immune Diseases, and Opportunities for Biophysical Chemistry

We present examples from our group where biophysical chemistry impacts unsolved problems in infectious diseases and auto-immune diseases. We start with bacterial biofilms, which are structured multi-cellular communities that are fundamental to the biology and ecology of bacteria. By using population tracking algorithms, we dissect bacterial social behavior at the single cell level.  We will also discuss how we can learn from innate immunity peptides to renovate antibiotic design, and make precision antibiotics and antibiotics against persister bacterial populations. Finally, we examine the pathological role of antimicrobial peptides in a range of autoimmune disorders.
