1. UK Breaks Ground for $18.6 Million Green' Davis Marksbury Building
University of Kentucky President Lee T. Todd, Jr., and UK donor Davis Marksbury broke ground October 6 for an $18.6 million, environmentally-friendly building that will house the second phase of the university's "Digital Village." The Davis Marksbury Building, to be constructed next to the James F. Hardymon Building on Rose Street, will house the UK College of Engineering's departments of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering, along with the UK Center for Visualization and Virtual Environments. The project is being funded by private donations, such as Marksbury's $6 million gift, and a match from the state's Research Challenge Trust Fund. The building will be UK's first to receive Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. Also participating in the groundbreaking were Secretary of the Governor's Executive Cabinet Mary Lassiter and Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry.
2. Lexmark, UK Reach Agreement for Opportunities for New Projects
Lexmark officials and UK, led by the Office for Commercialization & Economic Development and the Office for Sponsored Projects Administration, have forged a relationship to work over the long term to create opportunities at UK for new projects in engineering and marketing. UK engineering faculty in the departments of Chemical and Materials Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering are already working with Lexmark researchers under the new agreement. The UK Gatton College of Business and Economics will also work on collaborative projects with Lexmark. Lexmark and the university have worked together on research projects since 1988.
3. 'Sustainability Showcase' Highlights UK's Energy, Environmental Advances
After reviewing UK's recent advances in sustainability research and teaching, business operations, and outreach and community engagement, the President's Sustainability Advisory Committee and the Office of Facilities Management greatly expanded this fall's Big Blue Goes Green: A Sustainability Showcase to a full two-week celebration in September. The event's third year featured an online showcase, interactive tours, hands-on learning, and cutting-edge research. There were tours of UK's entry in the international Solar Decathlon; visits to The Arboretum to learn about gardening, rain gardens, and invasive plants; sustainability lectures; a trip to a farm to experience organic farming research and education; an inside look at many College of Engineering projects, including UK's solar car, Gato Del Sol III; a tour of the Cane Run Watershed; and a tour of UK's Delta Room, the central monitoring and dispatch area for main campus.

4. Former Israeli Prime Minister Speaks at UK on Middle East Peace Issues
Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert delivered a public lecture at the Singletary Center for the Arts on October 14 on Israel's view on prospects and preconditions for peace in the Middle East. The lecture is free and open to the public. Mr. Olmert's lecture was the first of two the university will sponsor this academic year as part of a continuing campus and community dialogue on the Middle East. In March 2010, the university will host the visit of a prominent Palestinian public figure to be announced at a later date. The goal is to inform the university and Kentucky communities and to facilitate thoughtful dialogue.
5. UK's Solar Decathlon Team Takes Green House to Washington
In preparation for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Decathlon competition, UK's Solar Decathlon team transported their S*KY BLUE House to Washington, D.C., in late September to participate in the national competition. The team's house competed against houses from 19 other universities worldwide at the DOE competition October 8-16, at the National Mall. At the competition, each team's house was evaluated in 10 specific areas: architecture, engineering, market viability, lighting design, communications, comfort, appliances, hot water, energy balance, and home entertainment. The team behind UK's solar house, the "Blues" Team, is an interdisciplinary group comprised of students, faculty and staff from six colleges and 16 centers and departments within UK. The team has been led by two principal investigators, Donald Colliver, professor of biosystems and agricultural engineering at the College of Agriculture, and Gregory Luhan, associate dean for research at the College of Design, as well as faculty from the College of Communications and Information Studies and College of Engineering.
6. Violent Crime Drops at UK While DUI Enforcement Leads to More Arrests
Violent crime at UK declined and DUI arrests increased from 2007 to 2008, according to UK Police statistics. The number of reported violent crimes was lower in all categories except assault. UK Interim Police Chief Joe Monroe attributes the decline to people being more diligent about their safely, especially since the 2007 incident at Virginia Tech. Alcohol-related arrests went up and down dramatically. DUI arrests jumped from 119 in 2007 to 215 in 2008, due mostly to a Kentucky Office of Highway Safety grant-funded task force that targeted impaired driving. The grant is continuing in 2009. Additionally, reports of alcohol intoxication and minors in possession of alcohol were down significantly, for which Monroe credits the UK and Lexington Police back-to-school task force efforts.

7. FDA Clears Ovarian Cancer Blood Test after Multisite Clinical Trial
A blood test that can help assess women's risk of ovarian cancer prior to surgery has been given FDA clearance, following a multisite clinical trial led by UK researcher Frederick R. Ueland, associate professor of gynecologic oncology at the College of Medicine and a gynecologic oncologist at the Markey Cancer Center. OVA1 is the first FDA-cleared laboratory test that can indicate the likelihood of ovarian cancer with high sensitivity prior to biopsy or exploratory surgery, even if radiological test results fail to indicate malignancy. The test was developed by Vermillion Inc., a molecular diagnostics company, in cooperation with Quest Diagnostics. The OVA1 test will be available for physician use later this year. The OVA1 test measures the levels of five well-established biomarkers and combines the results into a single numerical score. It is indicated for women over 18 who have an ovarian adnexal mass for which surgery is planned, but who have not yet been referred to an oncologist. The test provides a new option in the preoperative evaluation to help physicians assess if a pelvic mass is benign or malignant in order to help determine whether to refer a woman to a gynecologic oncologist for surgery.
8. Lexington Native Named to Head Firm Developing Clinician-conceived Products
The board of Therix Medical Inc., a newly formed company that will turn UK clinicians' ideas into products to improve patient care, has hired Lexington native Jim Clifton, a 23-year veteran in new business development, as the company's chief executive officer. Clifton comes to Therix from BridgePoint Medical, a health care company for patients with orthotic and prosthetic needs. The clinician innovation program and Therix Medical, developed by the UK Office for Commercialization & Economic Development in partnership with UK cardiologist Dr. John Gurley, already has received 12 intellectual property disclosures from UK HealthCare clinicians. The new initiative was recently unveiled during a workshop featuring serial entrepreneurs Dr. Thomas Fogarty, inventor of the world's first balloon catheter that revolutionized vascular surgery overnight, and UK President Lee T. Todd, Jr., founder of two technology companies. One of Clifton's first positions after receiving his MBA was with DataBeam Corporation, founded by Dr. Todd in 1983 and later sold to Lotus, an IBM subsidiary. UK's Kentucky Technology Inc. and the Bluegrass Angels and Bluegrass Angel Venture Fund are investing in Therix.
9. Development Office Honors 244 New Fellows for Their Generosity
The UK Office of Development celebrated the spirit of giving by honoring members of the Fellows Society in late September with a recognition program for donors who give $10,000 or more to the university. The dinner and dance honored 244 new Fellow inductees, along with 49 members of the Fellows Society who have upgraded their recognition level through increasing their donations. The event was held in conjunction with the Development Council Weekend. Since the program began in 1966, more than 8,000 donors have been named Fellows. The program honors various levels of giving: University Fellows ($10,000 or more, individuals only); Henry Stites Barker

Fellows ($50,000 or more); John Bryan Bowman Fellows ($250,000 or more); James Kennedy Patterson Fellows ($500,000 or more); and Presidential Fellows ($1 million or more). A list of this year's Fellows is available online at http://uloiow.ulcy.edu/content/fellows-weekend-honors-uk-donors.
10. Research Shows Promise as Potential New Treatment for Huntington's Disease
Groundbreaking research performed at the UK College of Medicine shows significant promise as a potential new treatment for Huntington's disease, a degenerative neurological disease for which there is currently no effective disease-modifying treatment. The research was performed in the laboratory of Don M. Gash, alumni professor and chair of the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, working closely with Dr. Zhiming Zhang, UK associate professor of anatomy and neurobiology. Zhang has developed a strong program in experimental neurosurgery focused on site-specific delivery of therapeutic drugs into the brain. His methodology has broad potential application for treating a number of neurological disorders. In this study, it was used to deliver a drug consisting of a gene-silencing RNA (small interfering RNA, or siRNA) directly to the central nervous system (CNS) in an experimental model. This technology, known as RNA interference or RNAi, works to decrease a toxic protein produced by the mutant huntingtin gene, which causes Huntington's disease. The success of the study is a crucial pre-clinical step to determine the feasibility of further development for human-subject trials.
11. Study Shows Business Centers Add $88.7 Million to Client Sales
Kentucky small businesses that worked with the Kentucky Small Business Development Centers (KSBDC) in 2007 also added $88.7 million in incremental sales to the Kentucky economy according to an independent study conducted by James Chrisman, Professor of management at Mississippi State University. The study also showed a $10.86 return for every dollar invested in KSBDC counseling services. The KSBDC is a network of 17 service centers located throughout Kentucky that provide a variety of services to help new and existing businesses succeed. The KSBDC is part of the UK Office for Commercialization & Economic Development.
12. UK Libraries Creates Big Blue Sports Archives Endowment
