A great place to work… again: UAB Medicine has been named one of the “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” by Becker’s Hospital Review.
University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers have discovered that endostatin, a naturally occurring protein in humans, can significantly decrease proliferation of castration-resistant prostate cells in culture, and in a recent paper in The FASEB Journal, they describe the physiological pathways and signaling evoked by endostatin.
