The Biochemistry and Structural Biology (BSB) program trains students to design and execute experiments to answer mechanistic questions in a broad range of disciplines including stem cell biology, epigenetics, metabolism and gene regulation. Students of BSB faculty publish papers in the highest quality, peer-reviewed journals and successfully compete for postdoctoral positions at other premier academic institutions and companies around the world.
One focus of the Institute will be to translate the understanding of basic mechanisms into clinical applications. The close interactions of basic and clinical scientists in the program and throughout the UAB Medical Center provide unique opportunities to develop new therapies for inherited and acquired human disorders.
Now accepting applications for Fall 2012.
