Scientists have discovered that one species can feed another from its waste. This finding could “hold the key to unlocking future breakthroughs in environmental science, business and medicine.”
Using sea urchins and shrimp as models, UAB scientists discovered that one species could feed another from its waste, without needing to use traditional food at all.
There is some prior knowledge on this topic regarding users' performance in these security tasks, but UAB's research took the work to the next level by studying users in a near-reality setting and evaluating more than one neurophysiological measure during a single study.
In a landmark step - after 19 years of research by Irshad Chaudry, Ph.D. - the University of Alabama at Birmingham has received a $10 million U.S. Department of Defense contract funded by the Combat Casualty Care Research Program, US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, Fort Detrick MD, to begin testing its potentially life-saving synthetic estrogen for safety in humans.
Throughout the day, students at UAB's Dental School worked alongside faculty members and dentists from the community to clean, remove or fill the teeth of about 550 patients at all three sites.
In the past year, UAB has attracted more high-achieving freshmen than ever before, fostered a student body focused on diversity and academic prowess, raised more money than ever, and continued plans to build new facilities.
In addition, through the Alabama Drug Discovery Alliance (ADDA), Southern Research and UAB established a program to look for potential new treatments for several rare genetic diseases such as Hurler's syndrome, with mutations similar to those found in some CF patients.
At UAB, Jarred Younger, Ph.D., hopes to establish Alabama's first research and clinical care center specializing in fibromyalgia and related conditions, including chronic fatigue syndrome and Gulf War Illness.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham will launch the first Phase 1 human trials of a drug—derived from the female hormone estrogen—that may help patients with severe bleeding survive long enough to get to appropriate medical care.
Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham appear to have found a better way to grow shrimp that is also less expensive, and the new process could hold the key to unlocking future breakthroughs in environmental science, business and medicine.
