Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham

A postdoctoral position in the UAB Division of Hematology/Oncology is immediately available to study lymphocyte development and members of a novel family of Fc receptor-like (FCRL) molecules. FCRLs possess tyrosine-based regulatory potential and are expressed by distinct populations of B cells and cytotoxic lymphocytes. Current work in the laboratory focuses on exploring their biological roles in human and mouse models as well as their importance in malignancies and autoimmune disorders.

  • New drugs to slow or even prevent Parkinson’s could be in human studies as early as 2015.Written by Matt Windsor An enzyme closely associated with genetic forms of Parkinson’s disease appears to play a larger role in its progression than previously thought, say investigators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The new research offers encouraging evidence that drugs to block this enzyme, known as leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 or LRRK2, could slow — or even...
