UAB Study Shows Ferritin Prevents Iron-Related Kidney Damage

Posted by Morgan Imel on Thu, Sep 12, 2013

Iron is the most common chemical element found on earth, and it plays a key role in the biochemical processes of almost all organisms. Though iron is an important building block of life, it is also attributed to causing cellular damage when it is released into its free catalytic form. Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham recently published a report in the Journal of Clinical Investigation which sought to help understand the relationship between the protein ferritin and kidney damage caused by this free iron. This study set a foundation for future research into potential treatments to prevent acute kidney injury.

U. Alabama Receives $2.2M for Pancreatic Cancer Research

Posted by Jennifer Nieuwkerk on Wed, Sep 04, 2013

Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, led by Donald Buchsbaum, PhD, received a $2.2 million grant from the NIH this year to study pancreatic cancer. According to the University of Alabama website, Dr. Buchsbaum is quoted as saying of his research goals: "My interests are focused on the use of monoclonal antibodies that bind to the tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) receptors for cancer therapy in combination with chemotherapy agents and radiation.” Dr. Buchsbaum and his research team began receiving funding for their studies of pancreatic cancer six years ago, though funding was limited at that time. The NIH RePORTER sheds light on the project that has received $2.2 million from the NIH this year in the proposal’s abstract:

Biomarine Research Programs at UAB Boosted with BP Oil Spill Funding

Posted by BCI Staff on Wed, Apr 27, 2011

Catastrophe has a way of catalyzing need and resources.  The 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has made University of Alabama (UAB) scientists' expertise in the biomarine environment off their coast particularly valuable.  BP has pledge up to $500 Million to study the effects of the spill, and some of that funding is making its way to biomarine research projects at UA-Birmingham through Alabama's Marine Environmental Science Consortium (MESC) and the larger Gulf Research Initiative Open Research Program.  The MESC has distributed $5 Million in Rapid Response Funds already, and 16 UAB researchers have received $308,344 in grants to fund pilot projects identified by and applied for at the UAB Gulf Oil Spill Summit last fall.
