Kirklin received this award for his dedication to advancing the science and treatment of children through the journey of heart transplantation.

UAB is one of only six centers in the world with this technology, which enables 3D device visualization using light to guide navigation of wires and catheters through blood vessels.
A study conducted by UAB researchers found that using genetic information for choosing medical treatment after getting a heart stent reduces the risk of potentially fatal cardiovascular events.
This commercial procedure is the first in the United States that uses first-of-its-kind ablation technology.

After waiting more than two years, Colin Tucker received a new heart thanks to UAB’s new organ transplant program that uses hepatitis C-positive organs. 

The book addresses the recognition and management of heart attack, heart failure, arrhythmia, valvular heart disease, cardiac transplantation, broken heart syndrome, hypertension and the depression experienced after a heart attack.
A study conducted by UAB researchers found that insulin resistance, a precursor to fatal cardiovascular events, is common among young adults.
The John B. Barnwell Award for outstanding achievement in clinical science research is the highest honor of the VA’s Clinical Science Research and Development Service.
This award recognizes UAB Hospital’s commitment to meeting standards of excellence in recruitment and retention, education, training and mentoring, research and evidence-based practice, patient outcomes, leadership and organizational ethics, and creation of a healthy work environment.
UAB researchers found that death due to cardiovascular causes in the Southeastern U.S. is 16 percent higher than in the rest of the country, and an estimated 101,953 additional deaths need to be prevented by 2025 to bridge this gap.

Investigations by researchers at UAB reveal the existence of a day/night rhythm of heart hormones, and how the disturbance of this rhythm could contribute to a high risk of high blood pressure and poor cardiovascular health in obese individuals.

Symptoms of heart valve disease often go undetected or dismissed as a normal part of aging. Patient Karen Hay was unaware and says the procedure at UAB to repair the valve saved her life. 

Researchers used a pig model of heart attacks, which more closely resembles the human heart in size and physiology, and thus has high clinical relevance to human disease.
A new study shows that children with COVID-19 may not display typical symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, therefore more screening and vigilance are required.
