Communicates UAB research discoveries and initiatives from across the university for a variety of audiences.

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.

The UAB physics professor will head the Coalition of EPSCoR/IDeA States, which promotes vibrant science and technology in underserved states.
The clinical lab in Spain Tower analyzes up to 5,000 tubes of blood each night, providing vital data for caregivers and patients in the nation’s third-largest public hospital.

This rapidly fatal brain cancer has seen only two improvements in therapy in 30 years, and research findings are pointing toward a unique new human clinical trial in 2017. 

Alabama now has more EPSCoR Track II grants than any other state following the award of basic science grants meant to stimulate competitive research in regions of the country traditionally less able to compete for such research funds.
A Western-style diet, with more omega-6 fatty acids than the Mediterranean, dysregulates lipid signaling in aged mice and promotes inflammation.
A mechanism through which circadian clocks in neurons encode external daily rhythms of excitability allows pacesetter neurons to communicate with the rest of the body via electrical impulses, with possible implications in understanding and treating mood disorders.
A UAB study will test whether training to modify care-resistant behavior can improve quality of life for family caregivers of dementia patients.
This study of cockroach-induced asthma and Enterobacter mirrors previous studies with fungus- and house dust mite-induced asthma, where neonatal vaccination with bacteria suppressed adult asthma.
UAB researchers will use pressures greater than those found at the center of the Earth to create as yet unknown new materials.
Moon Nahm’s research has led to improvements in testing effectiveness of pneumonia vaccines, a key step to preventing deaths from S. pneumoniae, the leading cause of pneumonia estimated to kill 1.6 million children annually
