Medicine, energy topics of Kavli lectures at American Chemical Society meeting
Date:6/6/2013

One scientist is pioneering a new field in medicine curing diseases by replacing the missing proteins that cause certain disorders, almost like an artificial limb replaces the function of a leg or arm lost to injury. Another is an internationally known leader in science on the cusp of chemistry and biology who focuses on using artificial photosynthesis to make energy from sunlight and water.

They will deliver the next talks in the Kavli Foundation Lecture series at the 246th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS), the world's largest scientific society. ACS announced today that Martin D. Burke, M.D., Ph.D., and Harry Gray, Ph.D., will deliver the lectures at the meeting. More than 10,000 scientists and others are expected for the event, which will include about 7,200 reports on new discoveries in science and other topics.

Burke is an associate professor of chemistry and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute early career scientist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He will deliver "The Kavli Foundation Emerging Leader in Chemistry Lecture" on Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, at 4 p.m., in the Indiana Convention Center.

He is a pioneer in the emerging field of "molecular prosthetics," which seeks to treat currently incurable medical conditions caused by missing proteins or proteins that don't work normally. The goal is development of medications that would travel to the site of the missing or malfunctioning protein, and do its work.

Gray is the Arnold O. Beckman Professor of Chemistry and founding director of the Beckman Institute at the California Institute of Technology. He will deliver "The Kavli Foundation Innovations in Chemistry Lecture" on Monday, Sept. 9, 2013, at 5:30 p.m., in th
