In their ongoing quest to develop the latest and most effective drugs for disease treatment, researchers in the University of Kentucky's Center for Pharmaceutical Research and Innovation are looking deep — as in, deep underground.
In celebration of the University of Kentucky's upcoming sesquicentennial in 2015, the 61st of 150 weekly installments remembers the accomplishments of Dean Arthur McQuiston Miller, for whom Miller Hall is named.
A new earthquake-monitoring station has been added to the seismic network that is jointly operated by the Kentucky Geological Survey (KGS) at the University of Kentucky and the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in the UK College of Arts and Sciences. The station is located behind the Perry County Public Library in Hazard, Ky., in the southeastern part of the state.
Jim Currens and Mike Farwell go to work at the Kentucky Horse Park on a regular basis, but they’re not horse trainers. They’re hydrogeologists that work with the Kentucky Geological Survey to monitor groundwater in the Cane Run Watershed, which includes surface streams and underground water systems that run from north Lexington to the North Elkhorn Creek in Georgetown, Kentucky. They collect data at the Kentucky Horse Park - or, perhaps more accurately, from below the Kentucky Horse Park.
During Spring of 2012, we joined Farwell and Currens to see their research station at the Kentucky Horse Park, and got a sense of what a typical visit to the KGS hydrogeology research station is like. Also, check out the photo essay of the trip.
