International Opportunity to Grow in Alabama

Posted by Anita Zhang on Tue, May 20, 2014

Living 17 years in a Dadaab refugee camp after fleeing Somalia, Africa, Hussein Issak Magale with his family came to the United States with a resettlement opportunity in 2009. After starting off at the University of Arizona in April 2010, Magale has worked in the Orthopaedic Research Lab and participated in an international research program in Kenya, Africa, which is funded by the National Institutes of Health and administrated by the University of Alabama. He will graduate in this May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Molecular and Cellular Biology.

With a large established minority population in place, the University of Alabama at Birmingham has integrated an effective alliance with Birmingham City Schools and the McWane Center to create a self-sustaining model to greatly enhance minority student’s science education. With this alliance working successfully, a significant number of minority students have advanced into biomedical careers in recent years. Annually, this alliance directly reaches 4,000 minority students and provides basic training to their teachers as well.

Except for putting the efforts in training biomedical students and their teachers, the University of Alabama at Birmingham spent a great deal in life science academic research and innovation. Last year, the University of Alabama at Birmingham has spent about $20 million in research, and with these great expenditures in place, the university has built a dynamic biotechnology infrastructure and a business environment advantageous for life sciences.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is also an unexpected standout in academic researches and innovations. The University of Alabama at Birmingham has received $191 million in new NIH research grants during 2013 and more than $40 million so far in April 2014. These funding levels from the NIH put the university in the top 25 ranked schools in the country for the NIH funding.

With its abundant life science research resources, the University of Alabama at Birmingham provides an excellent opportunity for lab supply companies to do business and network with the researchers and professors in the one of the best research institutions in the nation. 

To help the lab research/lab supply companies to reach out their target market and increase their sales in the South East region of the United States, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc will be holding the Birmingham BioResearch Product Faire™ Event on November 13, 2014. It provides a great opportunity to the lab supply companies, lab managers, and life science professionals to meet and talk about new products, and exchange new technology information.

As the organizer of the event, Biotechnology Calendar, Inc. has been producing on-campus trade shows for more than 20 years. Last year, the BioResearch Product Faire™ Event at the University of Alabama at Birmingham attracted 326 attendees. Of these attendees, 87 were purchasing agents, professors and post docs, and 58 were lab managers. These attendees came from 40 different research buildings and 45 on-campus departments.
