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.

  • Increased risk of major adverse cardiac events after the later surgery persists for one year.Carla HolcombA patient who has noncardiac surgery sometime after a stent is put into a coronary artery to open up a blockage has a greater risk for major adverse cardiac events (MACE) following the operation, but the optimal time to delay such elective surgery after stenting was not known. In a study of more than 28,000 patient records, first author Carla Holcomb,...

  • Stylish but dangerous? UAB study looks at injuries caused by wearing high-heeled shoes.Americans love high-heeled shoes. One survey in 2003 reported that 62 percent of American women wore shoes with a 2-inch or greater heel on a regular basis. Those shoes are taking a toll. New research from the University of Alabama at Birmingham shows that high-heeled-shoe-related injuries doubled between 2002 and 2012. The findings were published online May 12 in the Journal of Foot and...
