Students from underrepresented groups and from schools with limited research opportunities get stipends and do hands-on research in high-risk, high-reward projects.
These synthetic diamonds, used in micro-anvils, have produced nearly twice the pressure found at the center of the Earth.
What's new at UAB this week? Two coaches cast a long shadow on campus, physicists work to improve on perfection and UAB artist-in-residence Eric Essix literally took all his jazz hands for a ride around town. See it all in one video. Catch up in about a minute.
Heating a mixture of gases to furnace temperatures is one way to make a diamond film, nature’s hardest substance. Adding boron to the gas mixture may create new materials.
Physics professor Cheng-Chien Chen will use the fellowship to broaden his research in strongly correlated materials, which could lead to scientific advancement in the energy industry.
Hadiyah-Nicole Green, UAB alumna, will be recognized by GE in a Grand Central Station display for research in cancer treatment.
UAB will be a fundamental player in the Alabama jurisdiction of the program, which has just five awardees, with primary goals of improving scientific research and building workforce capacity.
An enthusiastic teacher and a fascinating topic lit his desire to learn. Now the veteran is building bone scaffolding with a three-dimensional bioprinter.
Undergraduate research opportunity attracts students from across the United States.
The UAB physics professor will head the Coalition of EPSCoR/IDeA States, which promotes vibrant science and technology in underserved states.
Alabama now has more EPSCoR Track II grants than any other state following the award of basic science grants meant to stimulate competitive research in regions of the country traditionally less able to compete for such research funds.
UAB researchers will use pressures greater than those found at the center of the Earth to create as yet unknown new materials.

The unique academic experiences available to students in the UAB Honors College are expanding with the selection of the college’s 2016-2017 Honors Faculty Fellows. 

Computing challenges are found across the UAB campus, from physics and neurology to genetics and the microbiome. Alabama’s most advanced supercomputer is now at UAB, making it possible to solve these challenges. 

Knowing when an asteroid could impact Earth would be nice, but learning more about super volcanoes might be more prudent.
Approximately 600 students apply for the Hertz Fellowship each year; only 15 percent are invited for a first-round interview.
UAB yields two-plus winners for fourth consecutive year for national undergraduate research scholarship program.
Sergey Mirov, UAB’s fifth NAI fellow, creates novel lasers and finds new applications for them.
The NSF will support a UAB/BBA collaboration through a $600,000 award — the first Partnership for Innovation grant ever given in Alabama.
