Shelby Announces $1.408 Million for University of Alabama at Birmingham

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 $1,408,045 to the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) for Systemic Lupus Erythematosus research.

“The University of Alabama at Birmingham is one of our nation’s premier research institutions,” said Shelby. “Researches at UAB will use this funding to learn more about Systemic Lupus Erythematosus.  I am confident that the findings from the research that will be conducted at UAB will reach far beyond Alabama and help extend and improve the lives of people across our nation suffering from this debilitating condition.”
