As well as being a comprehensive urban university with a nationally recognized academic health center, The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is the largest research institution in the state of Alabama. Research at UAB spans the spectrum and mingles disciplines to investigate, reveal, and apply knowledge that changes the lives of individuals and the fates of communities.

UAB embodies a spirit of discovery that advances knowledge, solves real-world problems and drives economic development. Our research faculty ranks among the nation's best funded and is noted for exceptional mentoring and training - from undergraduate researchers to post-doctoral fellows.

This work is supported by more than $430 million in sponsored research funds each year, and it is conducted in the departments of 10 schools, 24 universitywide research centers, UAB hospitals and clinics and field sites by faculty, fellows and students collaborating among themselves and with others around the globe.

We also rely on the generosity of others to continue our research and advance our knowledge to help our patients and improve their quality of life.
