The UAB Graduate School's “Discoveries in the Making” is an educational outreach program held monthly at Hoover and Homewood public libraries. UAB graduate students and postdoctoral fellows present to members of the community exciting progress toward the discoveries they are working to make. Through the efforts of our talented trainees, the “Discoveries” series enables UAB to share with local citizens our newest knowledge and discoveries, in the making. Hear why this series is important from our Graduate School Dean Dr. Lori McMahon, whose vision led to the creation of Discoveries, in the video.
