Research
Two new studies will have an intriguing mix of catalysts, “tunable” chemical bonds, supercomputers and ultrafast lasers.
UAB in Antarctica has fruitful research season on Earth’s southernmost continent.
A gene mutation causes wrinkled skin and hair loss; turning off that mutation restores the mouse to normal appearance.
The mechanism the tuberculosis pathogen uses in its escape suggests possible therapies to improve patient outcomes.
A gene called TXNIP was the answer, and it led to a drug called verapamil and a successful diabetes trial.
Significant novel findings published by UAB researchers established verapamil as a successful therapeutic approach to target loss of beta cell function caused by Type 1 diabetes.

Biomedical scientists and engineers can participate in a nationwide program that helps take their discoveries from the research lab to the clinical setting.

A UAB researcher hopes to use new data tools to find answers to a dangerous form of epilepsy.
A diabetes drug suggests potential therapy for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, based on research with human lung fibroblasts and a mouse model of lung fibrosis.
UAB is one of six universities in the world currently investigating the medicinal benefits of psilocybin.
