Full scale recruitment for the Alabama Genomic Health Initiative has begun at University of Alabama at Birmingham clinics in Birmingham. The AGHI is one of the nation’s first statewide efforts to harness the power of genomic analysis to identify those at high risk for genetic disease.

The AGHI, a partnership between UAB and HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, will recruit a diverse group of participants from every county in Alabama and provide genomic analysis and interpretation to this group free of charge. Over a five-year period, the goal will be to increase the number of participants to more than 10,000 persons.

To learn more about the Alabama Genomic Health Initiative please visit To participate, call 1-855-462-6850.

​We are excited to have Dr. Peter Nemes (the 2017 Young Investigator Awardee of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry) from the Department of Chemistry at George Washington University, give the Plenary Talk of the UAB Metabolomics Workshop on single cell analysis of the metabolome.

The talk will be in the Margaret Cameron Spain Auditorium at 10:30 am next Tuesday, July 18. It’s open to everyone at UAB and a flyer, Peter’s CV and an article on Single-Cell Analysis are attached. Please share with others who may be interested in attending.

Please view the flyer on the Metabolomics Website.

OSP has several new training opportunities coming up and additional sessions of training currently offered. You can register for any of these courses in the UAB Learning System (LMS).

UAB - HudsonAlpha Center for Genomic Medicine is accepting applications for our UAB-HA Genomic Medicine Post-Doctoral Training program from trainees who are interested in pursuing a career in Genomic Medicine. The purpose of this training grant is to recruit postdoctoral trainees from various disciplines and provide mentorship and clinical research training in genomic medicine.

This is a two-year postdoctoral research training program funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute. The program provides research training under the mentorship of faculty either at UAB or at HudsonAlpha, as well as experience in analysis and interpretation of genomic data, such as whole genome sequencing. This is also a program that includes seminars on genomics and bioethics as well as experiences in genomic laboratories and clinics.
