translating therapyUntil recently, physical therapy was a foreign concept in China, which has about 30,000 rehabilitation professionals for 1.3 billion people. UAB training partnerships for students and specialists are helping to change that mindset. A UAB physical therapist and two Beijing alumni describe cultural challenges they face — and promising efforts that could bring benefits of therapy to more patients — in UAB Magazine.
During the past few years, technological innovations have opened up an entirely new way to approach scientific questions. Data-driven research starts with massive information sets — the genomic profiles of thousands of patients, for example, or millions of spam emails — and then searches for emerging patterns in that data. In the latest issue of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s "Business Horizon Quarterly", UAB President Ray Watts, M.D., explains the way data-driven research at UAB is being applied to find novel treatments for disease, create new products and businesses and train the next generation of innovation-savvy students.
editing the brain
Epigenetic changes are implicated in a host of neural conditions, from Alzheimer's-related memory loss to depression. Now, a revolutionary set of molecular editing tools are allowing scientists to alter the epigenome like never before. In The Mix, UAB neuroscientist Jeremy Day, Ph.D., explains how he uses these techniques in his lab, and why they could lead to an entirely new kind of therapy.
Pauline Jolly, Ph.D., is a dedicated teacher, researcher and mentor who equips people with the knowledge and competencies to make the world a better place for all.
Neuroradiologist Robert Kessler, M.D., is using UAB’s powerful cyclotron to develop imaging tests that reveal changes caused by depression, addiction, Parkinson’s disease and more.
evolution revolutionLee Meadows is leading an evolution revolution. The School of Education professor has developed strategies to help classroom teachers approach the sensitive subject, using lesson plans that emphasize scientific understanding, but not belief. Take a closer look at his ideas, which have drawn attention from the Smithsonian and educators nationwide, in UAB Magazine.
mix scansNeurologist Hassan Fathallah-Shaykh, M.D., Ph.D., is deploying a new weapon in the war on cancer: mathematical theory. His sophisticated models of tumor growth are predicting new insights on cancer behavior — and could eventually guide treatment decisions.
Mohammad Khaled, Ph.D., professor emeritus in the Department of Nutrition Sciences, was awarded a Fulbright-Nehru Academic and Professional Excellence Award to develop and improve research and teaching efforts in India related to Type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Inside a Birmingham retirement community, UAB dental students glimpse the future. Caring for residents in the School of Dentistry’s geriatric clinic — unique in Alabama — they learn how America’s aging population will shape their careers. Discover how dental health impacts overall health, and how students embrace the challenges and joys of caring for older patients, in UAB Magazine.
After 22 Antarctic journeys, UAB biologist Jim McClintock is practically a local. Between scientific expeditions, he leads cruises to the icy continent, offering Alabamians a peek inside polar research labs and highlighting the impact of climate change on the majestic landscape. Five travelers share life-changing moments from their trips with McClintock in UAB Magazine.
