An emerging suite of precision epigenetic editing techniques is allowing researchers to switch genes on and off at will. These tools could lead to new treatments for age-related memory loss, PTSD, addiction, depression and more.
In a recent "New Careers for Today's Scientists" seminar, UAB alumni and other panelists explained how to find success in private-sector science.
Neuroradiologist Robert Kessler, M.D., is using UAB's powerful cyclotron to develop specialized PET imaging tests that illuminate changes in the brain related to Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, depression and more.
Computer simulations of tumor behavior are generating new research insights — and could lead to personalized therapies.
What’s the secret to creating a successful medical device? A great idea — and a strong team, explains Robert Hergenrother, Ph.D., director of the new AIMTech partnership between UAB and Southern Research Institute.
New technologies are allowing researchers to study the interaction between genes and the immune system in greater detail and giving them fresh insight on autoimmune diseases, cancer and other conditions.
