It requires basic programming experience and understanding of computer/smartphone hardware and software.
By the end of the four weeks, the students will have an understanding of basic science research, as well as an understanding of the wide range of career opportunities available in biomedical fields.
Students will learn basic programming skills, algorithms for decision-making, efficient programming techniques through intensive hands-on projects and experiments using Arduino computer boards.
Campers will start soldering copper wires to build artifacts and various geometrical three-dimensional shapes.

Athletic camps at UAB

Information on athletic camps at UAB, including football, basketball, baseball, softball and more, can be found on the Athletics site.
Campers will experience games, sports, hands-on learning, craft activities, on-campus field trips and much more. Registration opens March 1.
Receive hands-on training on collecting evidence, searching for hackers, identifying malware and open source intelligence gathering.
Campers will work their way through a series of related cases, analyzing evidence each day from a different crime scene.
UAB Emerald Camp is a three-day instructional camp for majorettes and color guard.
This camp also includes sessions on marching fundamentals, percussion writing, and equipment tuning and maintenance.
This camp is for advanced high school students with experience on keyboard instruments.
Basic drumming techniques for students with one year or less public school band instruction.
Dedicated to the development of young musicians, this camp intends for participants to gain new skills and methods they can carry back to their school band programs and share with other band members.

Marisa Marques, M.D., receives awards for her commitment to apheresis at UAB.
Walker of the UAB School of Nursing was one of six health care professionals honored by the ACS with a prestigious national award.
Some people inherit a condition that elevates their cholesterol to an excessive degree, and no amount of diet or exercise can bring the numbers down. UAB researchers are developing and testing a new peptide that may lead to better treatment options.
“It uses sophisticated imaging to create a 3D image of the tumor. It then delivers a focused beam of radiation, custom-sized and shaped, so that it paints the tumor site while leaving surrounding tissue generally untouched, reducing collateral damage.”
University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) researchers studying rod cell proteins GARP1 and GARP2, or glutamic acid-rich proteins 1 and 2, to learn how they function in normal phototransduction in the eye have found that GARP2 accelerates retinal degeneration in mice that lack another rod cell protein, cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)-gated cation channel β-subunit, involved in producing the electrical signal.
Pizzarelli is among the prime revivalists of the great American songbook, and has expanded that repertoire by including the music of Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Antônio Carlos Jobim, and Lennon-McCartney.
The event will be offered over two days in February, and will also include a parent/educator workshop this year.
The AHA’s Life’s Simple 7 is a composite measure of seven modifiable heart-healthy factors: cigarette smoking, physical activity, diet, BMI, BP, cholesterol and glucose levels.
University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers are studying rod cell proteins GARP1 and GARP2 to learn how they function in normal phototransduction, as well as in abnormal degeneration of the retina that can lead to blindness in diseases like retinitis pigmentosa.
Clinical trials are underway at the University of Alabama at Birmingham to treat cavities with resin. The process is called resin infiltration and it allows the dentist to slide a perforated plastic sheet between the teeth with the cavities and fill it with resin.
All of the plays in the March 6-10 festival are written, directed and acted by students, staff and faculty from the UAB Department of Theatre. All tickets are $5, and shows typically sell out.
Exercise medicine gets a boost with the opening of the 7,000-square-foot UAB Exercise Clinical Trial Facility.
REACT is a unique public-private partnership created to align law enforcement and special needs communities to improve safety.
UAB will bring proton therapy, one of the most technically advanced forms of cancer-killing radiation, to Alabama with the new Proton Therapy Center.
A 90-ton machine called a cyclotron will accelerate protons to very high speeds to impact human tumors.
A UAB study shows specialized treatment sites contribute to better survival rates for those with acute leukemia. 
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, 23 percent of women will die within one year after having a heart attack , and nearly 46 percent of women become disabled with heart failure.
Resin infiltration allows the dentist to slide a plastic perforated sheet between the teeth with the cavities.
UAB’s annual Reynolds-Finley Lecture will feature discussion of the collaboration between UAB and HudsonAlpha in precision medicine.

Normally, dentists drill away at a tooth to access any cavities to then fill them in. But the new treatment involves sliding a sheet between the teeth and cavities. Called resin infiltration, drilling isn't needed and it can be done without numbing. And experts now say the system, currently under trial, could be a game-changer.

The UAB Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is one of the Southeast’s foremost providers of comprehensive rehabilitation care.
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.
“It kind of makes sense,” said Courtney Peterson, lead author of the study and an assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. “Your body’s fat-burning ability peaks after you’ve been fasting for 12 to 14 hours.”
