Discovery is at the core of our mission – it is the essential thread that weaves together the fabric of innovative research, first-rate medical education, and world-class health care.

Our basic scientists conduct studies at the cellular, molecular, genetic, and systems level, leading to a better understanding of the mechanisms of disease. At the other end of the continuum, clinical research measures and tracks outcomes, applying ideas generated in the laboratory to improve the health and well-being of patients.

Translational science – the bridge between bench and bedside – is coordinated through the UAB Center for Clinical and Translational Science, one of 60 such centers across the country funded by the National Institutes of Health.

And finally, our research enterprise focuses on health policy, epidemiology, health care outcomes, and the disparities that affect poor, minority, and disadvantaged communities across Alabama and around the world.
