7ReasonsSquareWelcome to the Cell, Molecular, and Developmental Biology (CMDB) PhD Theme, a part of the Graduate Biomedical Sciences program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine. The CMDB theme is designed to provide maximum flexibility that results in students who are prepared to launch into a career in the emerging biomedical science field. Our graduates have exciting careers in scientific research in both academic and industrial settings; scientific-related writing, business, law, bioterrorism, forensics, administration, and education. 

About Us: CMDB is a cross-disciplinary theme at a leading research University in the sunny south, consisting of a diverse group of scientists and physicians who have a collective interest in fundamental processes in cell, molecular, and developmental biology and how alterations in these processes result inhuman diseases and birth defects.

About UAB: We are consistently one of the top 25 NIH funded research institutions in the U.S. and with faculty from over 30 departments across campus there are many opportunities for you in new and exciting areas of biomedical research. And, UAB is a leader in innovative technology such as whole genome sequencing, electron microscopy, mass spectrometry, crystallography, flow cytometry, drug discovery and others.

Contact Us: We are always searching for the brightest and most dedicated students to join our highly competitive CMDB theme and experience firsthand our cutting edge science. This is your personal invitation to explore the many possible opportunities offered by CMDB at UAB. Please explore this web site and apply today!

  • A 1993 UAB scientific paper describing CI Therapy has been named the most cited article in major rehabilitation journals over the past 30 years.Edward Taub and the Dalai LamaA landmark study published in 1993 by investigators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham describing Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy is the most cited scientific article published within the last three decades in the three most prominent rehabilitation journals, according to a review just presented in PM&R, the official scientific journal of theAmerican Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. CI Therapy, developed by Edward Taub, Ph.D., University Professor and professor in the Department of Psychology at UAB, is a family of techniques that has been shown to be effective in improving the rehabilitation of movement after stroke and other neurological injuries. The 1993 article, titled “Technique to improve chronic motor deficit after stroke,” written by Taub, Neal Miller, Thomas Novack and others, has been cited...

  • A UAB scientist participated in a panel with other brain plasticity experts and His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama hosted a dialogue at the University of Alabama at Birmingham on Saturday, Oct. 25, alongside leading experts in the brain’s healing power and how the brain changes. The “Neuroplasticity and Healing” forum featured the Dalai Lama and prominent scientists known for expertise in brain plasticity, or changes in how the brain works due to modifications in behavior, environment, neural processes, thinking and emotions, as well as changes resulting from bodily injury. UAB is home to the Taub Training Clinic, which treats patients who have suffered from strokes or traumatic brain injury, using a novel family of therapies developed by Edward Taub, Ph.D. Taub, a behavioral neuroscientist, developed this new family of techniques, termed constraint-induced movement therapy, or CI therapy, which has been shown to be effective in improving the rehabilitation...

  • UAB’s CIA|JFR joins top universities to help combat cybercrime.The University of Alabama at Birmingham is one of nine universities chosen by The MITRE Corporation to serve on the Academic Affiliates Council, formed to support the company’s operation of the nation’s first federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) solely dedicated to enhancing cybersecurity and protecting national information systems. Through a competitive process, the U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) selected MITRE to operate the FFRDC. The FFRDC will support the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE), which was established in 2012 by NIST, the state of Maryland, and Montgomery County, Md., to help businesses secure their data and digital infrastructure by bringing together information security experts from industry, government and academia. Read more in NIST’s news release. To execute the goals of the newly established FFRDC, MITRE is partnering with the University System of Maryland (USM) and collaborating...
