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.”

Bliss Chang, an undergraduate majoring in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Biology, has been awarded the 2013 Beckman Scholarship to work in Jamil Saad’s lab for one year starting this summer. He was selected as the only Beckman scholar at UAB this year.

“I am excited to have two Beckman Scholars in my lab at the same time [in addition to Timothy Fernandez who received the 2012 Beckman Scholarship]. Having two Beckman Scholars in the same lab at the same time is a very rare case in the US since it is considered an extremely competitive award,” explains Dr. Saad.
