In this project supported through UAB’s urgent COVID-19 research fund, Professor Randall Davis aims to identify antibodies that block SARS-CoV-2 from entering human cells — information that could guide convalescent plasma therapy and more.

In this project supported through UAB’s urgent COVID-19 research fund, Assistant Professor Benjamin Larimer, Ph.D., adapts his lab’s work on phage display — normally used to identify new cancer treatments — to overcome limitations of antibody and vaccine testing.

Vineeta Kumar, M.D., professor in the Division of Nephrology, is one of 12 faculty selected to receive the 2019 UAB President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Scientific journals tackle the tough questions with rigor. Learn the questions consuming these thought leaders in sociology, pathology, civil engineering and surgery.

UAB is part of several trials to test whether an infusion of antibodies from people who have beaten COVID-19 can help those dealing with infection or at risk for infection. Donors are needed.

UAB Safe streamWearing appropriate personal protective gear is a simple, yet effective way to do your part to help stop the spread of coronavirus — but only when you do it properly and hygienically, say medical experts.

Trial to rapidly identify and treat the immune overreaction that may be behind some cases of severe COVID-19 is made possible through UAB Medicine’s Urgent COVID-19 Clinical Research and Laboratory Research Fund.

Antibody testing can reveal if a person has been exposed to the novel coronavirus in the past. More research needs to be done before we know if that means they are “protected” from COVID-19.
