Specific beats include: biochemistry; cell, developmental and integrated biology; microbiology; molecular genetics; neurobiology; pathology; pharmacology and tocixology; Alabama Drug Discovery Alliance; Bill L. Harbert Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

ResBiotic Inc. will use the money to develop and commercialize groundbreaking probiotic formulations for lung health.
Knowledge of the specific flagellins that drive the pathogenic immune response in Crohn’s disease is a step toward a potential preventive treatment.
This 3D-printed anatomical finger model is a low-cost ultrasound training tool for procedural guidance in corticosteroid injections.
This transport system may be widespread across many Gram-positive bacteria that contain proteins in the WXG100 superfamily. Tuberculosis kills 1 million people each year.
Differences in DNA methylation correlated with differences in heart-failure outcomes, as measured by two-year mortality.
This study will aid the understanding of, and future research on, inflammatory bowel disease, which afflicts about 1.6 million Americans. 
Researchers find a role for citrullinated vimentin as a damage-associated molecular pattern molecule, or DAMP, that is generated by lung macrophages in response to environmental cadmium/carbon black.
New research in mice points to a significant role for fungi to shape metabolism, including fat deposition, and metabolic hormones.
The list was made by a group that aspires to bolster and increase diversity across all scientific fields, promote retention through the “leaky academic pipeline,” and broaden academic and industrial awareness of diversity and inclusion.

Preclinical tests at UAB last year showed potent systemic and mucosal immune responses in mice after a single intranasal dose. The vaccine candidate was developed by Maryland-based Altimmune Inc.
