At UAB, collaboration is at the core of our research enterprise.

On campus, university-wide interdisciplinary research centers pull together faculty from across UAB to focus research on strategic topics, such as neuroscience, diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Beyond campus, Southern Research Institute, an incorporated affiliate of UAB, Innovation Depot, one of the nation's best biotechnology business incubators, and HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology in Huntsville, Ala., expand our research capacity.

You’ll also find School of Medicine researchers collaborating in South Africa, Peru, Korea and the Czech Republic, as well as in rural and economically disadvantaged areas of Alabama.
