Breakthrough treatments find
a new way forward


The Alabama Drug Discovery Alliance (ADDA), a funding agency and a pharmaceutical company rolled into one, is teaming with Southern Research and UAB’s Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IIE), to help UAB investigators who are on the road to marketing their discoveries. Fran Lund, Ph.D. (pictured above), who joined UAB as Department of Microbiology chair in 2012, says, “the opportunity to even apply for an ADDA grant was a big factor in my decision to come to Birmingham.”

Tim150Timothy Fernandez (a member of Dr. Jamil Saad’s lab) was one of three undergraduate recipients of the College of the Arts and Sciences 2013 Dean’s Award. Students receiving this high honor represent the very best that UAB can achieve, says Dr. Catherine Daniélou, Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Affairs.

The Dean’s Scholarship Award is a college-wide scholarship open to students currently enrolled in or admitted to a degree-granting program in the College of Arts and Sciences who have demonstrated solid academic promise and leadership qualities. Recipients must have at least an overall 3.0 grade point average.

Timothy has worked in Jamil Saad’s lab for three years and is a co-author on a JBC manuscript "Binding of calmodulin to the HIV-1 matrix protein triggers myristate exposure" and a review in Frontiers in Microbiology published last year. He will be recognized for this achievement at Honors Convocation on Tuesday, May 7th.
