A 90-ton machine called a cyclotron will accelerate protons to very high speeds to impact human tumors.
The function and structure of protein GARP2 in rod cells of the retina is still not clear, but researchers have shown that GARP2 accelerates retinal degeneration in mice, and have made an important step toward creating a standardized nomenclature between mice and humans for a measurement of retinal degeneration.
Tuberculosis kills 1.8 million people a year, and 10 million more are infected. Development of host-cell directed therapies that could restore cellular function during M. tuberculosis infection, such as a “release and kill” strategy, could shorten drug treatment of TB patients.
It appears that new cells compete to ‘win’ synapse connections away from old cells, which promotes network plasticity.
Research from UAB suggests that nearly half of children with the most common type of leukemia or their parents say they took more medications than they actually did.
The award recognizes a significant paper by Cui in Cell Death and Differentiation.

UAB engineers will serve in a consortium of 10 Southeastern universities to develop novel strategies for traffic problems.
Abnormal antibody production that allows inflammation leading to AIDS is detected by analysis of antibodies in gut fluid of HIV-1-infected people.
In another example of precision medicine, UAB researchers have used IPF patients own lung tissue to create models to determine the most effective medication for that patient.
Cardiac muscle patches in this proof-of-concept research may represent an important step toward the clinical use of 3-D-printing technology, as researchers have grown heart tissue by seeding a mix of human cells onto a 1-micron-resolution scaffold made with a 3-D printer.
UAB and VICIS have each made major strides in developing next generation football helmets in response to the growing concussion crisis, and they have partnered to combine expertise and intellectual property to bring more effective helmets to the market.
A significant new study by The Cancer Genome Atlas Research Network, including a UAB physician-scientist, uncovers genetic mutations of cervical cancer that hold a key to targeting and treating the disease.
Thanks to the popular TV show Blacklist, America is becoming familiar with CRISPR, a revolutionary gene-editing tool. UAB scientists and students explain how it works — and how they are using these “molecular scissors” to cut a path toward genetic cures for sickle cell and brain diseases
David Kimberlin, M.D., vice chair of Pediatrics and co-director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, is a physician at Children’s of Alabama. He is the editor of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Red Book, which establishes which vaccines should be given, when and to whom.

For women with a prior low transverse incision cesarean delivery, the decision to undergo a vaginal delivery or elect to have a repeat cesarean delivery has important clinical and economic ramifications.
The UAB study, an updated meta-analysis of the use of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators for non-ischemic cardiomyopathy, provides further support to the current American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology guidelines and challenges the recently published DANISH trial.

For the first time in humans, it has been reported that eating early in the day lessens daily swings in hunger and changes the 24-hour pattern of fat oxidation and energy metabolism, which may aid in weight loss.

Pediatric patients admitted to intensive care units face increased risk of death from sudden kidney problems.
A UAB study shows that evaluation from a vision specialist should be included in return-to-learn concussion protocols.
A key Leukemia & Lymphoma Society grant will provide an opportunity for a UAB researcher to develop a new immunotherapy treatment approach for the leukemia most prevalent in Western countries.
