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.”

ZinkernagelUAB was host for the Spring Immunology Symposium held June 22-23, 2013. This was the second year for the regional meeting that was created by faculty from Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Emory University School of Medicine. The symposium showcases immunology research being done in the Southeast as researchers share new work, exchange ideas and build collaborations.

The Microbiology department played an important role in hosting this event. Hubert Tse, Ph.D., was one of the organizers of the meeting, which was sponsored by the Immunology Autoimmunity and Transplantation Steering Committee. Frances Lund, Ph.D., microbiology department chair, and Casey Weaver, M.D., microbiology department secondary faculty member, were co-directors of the steering committee.

Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Rolf Zinkernagel of the University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland; Dr. Emil Unanue of Washington University School of Medicine; and Dr.John Cambier of the Denver School of Medicine, were distinguished keynote speakers. Faculty members at Emory, HudsonAlpha, Vanderbilt, University of Tennessee at Memphis, Georgia Regents University, University of Florida and UAB presented their work.
