A new study finds that at least 16.8 million Americans could potentially benefit from lowering their systolic blood pressure (SBP) to 120 mmHg, much lower than current guidelines of 140 or 150 mmHg.
Tim Townes and his researchers appear to be tantalizingly close to curing sickle cell disease and potentially many others.
Archaeologist Sarah Parcak uses satellite images and scanning technology to track down humanity’s oldest treasures, but she's more than a modern-day Indiana Jones. The professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham can spot topographical and chemical changes to the earth's surface, clues to where cultural heritage sites may have been disturbed and to what extent, and whether the activity could indicate looting.
The 2015 guidelines, which have been published in Arthritis & Rheumatology and Arthritis Care & Research, were presented by lead author Jasvinder A. Singh, MD, of the University of Alabama at Birmingham in a press conference at the annual meeting of the American College of Rheumatology here.
One archaeologist is swapping trowels and dust for satellites in the stars - and she's just been awarded the 2016 TED Prize, and its accompanying one million dollar investment, for her work. Sarah Parcak, Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, told Dan Damon about her discoveries, and her plans for that one million dollars.
Sarah Parcak, an anthropology professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has been announced as the recipient of the 2016 TED Prize, a $1 million grant given each year to a person "with a creative, bold vision to spark global change."

Sarah Parcak, winner of the 2016 TED Prize, which was announced today, has pioneered the use of satellite imaging systems to map, quantify, and protect humanity’s past.
Approximately $1.5 million of the gift from Regions will create two endowed program support funds that will promote financial education outreach and research within UAB and the community, including partnerships with Birmingham City Schools, GEAR UP Alabama and GEAR UP Birmingham.
The school has formed a 28-member foundation to raise money for its football program and other sports. The UAB foundation will be similar to those at the University of Alabama and Auburn University.
