This noninvasive procedure is used for high-risk patients who have had previous tissue valve replacements. This surgical procedure repairs the valve without removing the old, damaged valve. Instead, it wedges a replacement valve into the aortic valve’s place.
The National Science Foundation awarded $5 million in funding for universities to establish big data hubs in the North, South, East and West. UA and UAB, along with Georgia Tech and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, are working in the South region.
A 2012 study by the University of Alabama at Birmingham found that springing forward by an hour was associated with a 10 per cent increase in the risk of heart attack over the following 48 hours.
Dr Irshad Chaudry from the University of Alabama at Birmingham made the discovery of EE-3-SO4's power following a study with female mice.
And those AIF funds have been critical for the research enterprises of UAB. They have directly led to additional investments and grants to upgrade workflow, recruit new researchers, and push further into development.
In a landmark step – after 19 years of research by Irshad Chaudry, Ph.D. – UAB has received a $10 million U.S. Department of Defense contract funded by the Combat Casualty Care Research Program, U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, Fort Detrick, MD, to begin testing its potentially life-saving synthetic estrogen for safety in humans.
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.
Computer users are good at detecting malware, but not phishing, research has found. So scientists want to completely revolutionize how phishing is detected. They have a unique idea.
The researchers looked at other data and saw seven states where black women had higher rates of newly diagnosed breast cancer than white women. Nearly all were in the South, where obesity rates are particularly high.
