It appears that new cells compete to ‘win’ synapse connections away from old cells, which promotes network plasticity.
The award recognizes a significant paper by Cui in Cell Death and Differentiation.
Abnormal antibody production that allows inflammation leading to AIDS is detected by analysis of antibodies in gut fluid of HIV-1-infected people.
Cardiac muscle patches in this proof-of-concept research may represent an important step toward the clinical use of 3-D-printing technology, as researchers have grown heart tissue by seeding a mix of human cells onto a 1-micron-resolution scaffold made with a 3-D printer.
This study shows how stress blocks the release of an anti-anxiety neuropeptide in the brain, and it could pave the way for new therapeutic targets for PTSD.
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.
