Postdocs in UAB News

  • After 30 years at UAB, VP Marchase announces plans to retire
    Longtime VP for Research and Economic Development Richard B. Marchase, Ph.D., plans to retire at the end of 2016. During his tenure, UAB annual research expenditures grew from $331 million to $510 million.
  • New role for immature brain neurons in the dentate gyrus identified
    Researchers have proposed a model that resolves a seeming paradox in one of the most intriguing areas of the brain, exploring how immature granule cells in the dentate gyrus appear able to enhance pattern separation due to lesser synaptic connectivity than mature cells.
  • Palliative care makes every moment count
    Palliative care helps patients get the most out of life, whether they’re newly diagnosed, a survivor, or nearing the end of their journey. UAB’s palliative care pioneers provide a fresh look at the fast-growing specialty and its emphasis on listening, choices, patient goals, and quality of life.
