A study conducted by UAB researchers found that insulin resistance, a precursor to fatal cardiovascular events, is common among young adults.

Yabing Chen, Ph.D., is the first researcher at the Birmingham VA to receive this highest honor for a non-physician scientist.

The grant will explore ways to employ artificial intelligence with telehealth in rural, underserved areas of the South.

The higher infectivity correlates with mutations that increase viral binding to a cell surface glucosaminoglycan, heparan sulfate.

Pharmacogenomics has become a valuable tool for optimizing treatments and is poised to play an increasing role in clinical care.

This grant will allow Amm to develop a new pre-clinical model for surgically removing ameloblastomas to reduce the chance of recurrence in patients.  

This finding upends the long-held paradigm that priming during lung infections takes place only in the draining lymph nodes, and it will be key to developing more efficient vaccinations and therapies for respiratory challenges.

In this arteriolar niche, breast cancer stem cells and arteriolar endothelial cells cross-talk using a well-known signaling pathway. Targeting this pathway may offer therapeutic potential.

UAB continues to lead the way in the evolving field of social entrepreneurship: Patrick J. Murphy, Ph.D., has been recognized as one of the field’s top scholars.

Sixto Leal, M.D., Ph.D., was featured in the “Front(line) and Center” category in the Pathologist's 2021 Power List recognizing some of the most inspirational pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals in the U.S. in 2021.

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.
The histone methyltransferase DOT1L — the potential target — is overexpressed in ovarian cancer, and high levels of expression correlate with reduced progression-free and overall survival.
UAB is participating in a nationwide study to treat clinically depressed patients with a VNS device — originally created for treatment of seizure disorders.
The RURAL Heart and Lung Study clinic will bring to rural communities technology that provides access to diagnostic tests that are not routinely done in rural settings. UAB researchers will examine medical, lifestyle and behavioral factors that contribute to higher health concerns in residents of Dallas and Wilcox counties.

MicroCT of infected human lung tissue, along with histology and immunohistochemistry, was used to construct images of TB granulomas, airways and vasculature.
