Amidst the increasing popularity and overarching involvement of modern technologies in all spheres of human life and activities, California-based entrepreneur and philanthropist, Kenny Slaught, acknowledges the value of groundbreaking innovations in the property development market. As he emphasizes that technological advances have brought America’s real estate industry into the digital age, making the property management sector both more efficient and profitable, Slaught further elaborates on the role of technologies in the housing industry on his blog at KennySlaught.com.
Kenny Slaught is proud to note that David Low, a professor in UCSB’s Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, will head up an innovative global health and development research project that will go by the title of “Strategy for development of enteric pathogen-specific phage”. Low’s research focuses on a revolutionary way to fight against serious bacterial pathogens that have become resistant to many once-powerful antibiotics. He will create phage to locate and destroy several pathogenic bacteria to avoid enteric diseases in small youth. They will engineer different versions of the T2 lytic bacteriophage that bind multiple different regions of the BamA protein found on the surface of several pathogenic bacteria, which will ensure they only infect these target bacteria. They will test the different phage for ability to kill pathogenic E. coli and Shigella, and whether they will end up forming a resistance.
Amidst the growing worldwide recognition of the role of research and technologies in improving global health care and human wellbeing, California-based entrepreneur and philanthropist, Kenny Slaught, acknowledges the value of scientific innovations in addressing international development needs. Having earned a degree in business and economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, he has served on the UCSB Foundation Board of Trustees since 1996. The prominent real estate developer has recently praised the University on his blog at KennySlaught.com, as the notable institution was announced the Grand Challenges Explorations grant winner last year in May.
Annually, the symposium allows educators, artists, donors, and local not-for-profits to meet students and members of the community and discuss the state of arts education in the area. This incredible initiative provides insight and direction for forming better, more focused programs in the future. Other education outreach projects include a drive to collect instruments to donate to students in need, grants for local programs that wish to make use of resources available at the Santa Barbara Bowl, and funding for college students pursuing the performing arts. Additionally, notes Kenny Slaught, the foundation finances a children’s program at Cottage Hospital and various in-school and after-school programs, particularly in neighborhoods feeling the concert season at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The Notes for Notes program, however, connects students with free instruments and lessons. A massive volunteer committee oversees the educational outreach projects.
