U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will award $315,375 to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) for medical research related to diabetes, endocrinology, and metabolic research.
