New treatments emerging from the labs in the Department of Chemistry rely on split-second timing, tiny cargo bubbles and supercomputer-powered predictions.

The AI Literacy Course that fellow Jordan Perchik, M.D., began in 2020 for UAB trainees now reaches 25 programs in 10 countries — at a time when radiology faces global shortages and a proliferation of artificial intelligence tools.

Five years after he retired from the OR, cardiothoracic surgeon James K. Kirklin, M.D., is starting a new company that will leverage his team’s research on advanced statistics and machine-learning algorithms to track and predict outcomes for high-risk patients.

UAB scientists will have a new arsenal of state-of-the-art, high-end technology for their investigations in infectious diseases and pandemic preparedness through a $4.3 million scientific equipment grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

UAB history students and faculty are contributing to the Beth-El Civil Rights Experience, an effort by the congregation of Birmingham’s Temple Beth-El to share the experiences of members of the city’s Jewish community during the era, including an attempted bombing in 1958.

Driver assistance tech that comes standard on new vehicles can be tricked into causing accidents — but there is a way to alert humans in time. A UAB grad student and his mentor will share their findings this month at a global conference.

Patients with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome will soon be able to enroll in the clinical trial of a PET agent that can capture evidence of brain infiltration by white blood cells and could eventually guide treatment.
This summer, more faculty than ever took part in the Red Mountain Project, a UAB Sustainability initiative demonstrating how to incorporate the topic into new or existing courses. Students want to know more about sustainability, participants say, and their cohort offered “a base of people to connect with and brainstorm ideas.”
By alternating high-salt and low-salt diets, a new clinical trial aims to find out how common salt sensitivity of blood pressure is in the general population. The researchers are also exploring whether the immune system plays a role.

The Cardiogenomics Clinic at UAB, one of only two in the Southeast, uses genetic testing to develop a personalized plan for patients at risk of hereditary cardiovascular conditions. “We’re not just treating one patient, but the whole family,” doctors say.
