CNine Biosolutions is moving toward clinical testing of its UAB-licensed technology.
Students from the inaugural class of the Undergraduate Immunology Program explain what attracted them to the major and UAB.
This advanced, direct electron detector will yield near-atomic resolution of macromolecules and 3-D tomography of cells or tissue slices.
This structure will further explain how the virus infects human cells and how progeny viruses are assembled, and it may be a point of attack to disarm the virus.
Researchers study the mechanisms that prevent autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus or multiple sclerosis after an infection.
Researchers have discovered the mechanism of this control, with implications for developmental biology, the immune response and cancer dysregulation.
