The UAB Program in Immunology NIH Training Grant has been renewed with a perfect score of 10! Drs. Harry Schroeder and Laurie Harrington (Director and Co-Director of the Training Program and Grant) announced the good news February 26, 2013.

The UAB Program in Immunology has more than 69 members on the UAB campus including 14 Primary and 20 Secondary Faculty in the Department of Microbiology. As Drs. Schroeder and Harrington indicated in their announcement: "The training grant was judged on the quality of the written application, the qualifications of the Program Director and Co-Director, the track record of the previous and current trainees, the quality of the institution, and the track records and qualifications of the mentors. A score of 10 indicates that the committee viewed our program faculty and trainees very favorably."

Congratulations to all!
