Vogt Memorial

Frank VogtThe Department of Chemistry is hosting a morning dedicated to the memory of longtime faculty member Frank Vogt.

First, due to Frank’s dedication to research, we felt it would be appropriate to honor this by holding a special seminar on the day of the Memorial. Professor Jean-Francois Masson from the Universite de Montreal has generously agreed to give this research talk. Masson is a world leader in Frank’s field of Bioanalytical Chemistry and a close colleague of Frank’s. Details for the seminar are listed below:

Time: Friday, May 24th at 10 AM
Location: UT Buehler Chemistry Building room 415
Title: Plasmonic nanobiosensors: From therapeutic drug and environmental monitoring to optophysiology of living cells

The memorial will take place at 2 PM that day in the new student union room 169 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. If you would like to share pictures of Frank Vogt please email our recruiting and outreach coordinator Kayla Benson ( Anyone who would like to speak at the Memorial can contact Michael Best (

We hope that you will be able to join us to celebrate Frank’s life, career and contributions to Chemistry and the University of Tennessee.
