  4. Cancer treatment often fails because of p-glycoprotein, which pumps chemotherapies out of cancer cells before the drugs can kill them. Nearby healthy cells use the same protein to pump out thousands of toxins, so you can’t just shut it down with a drug.
    Crystallography and X-ray diffraction are techniques that reveal the 3-D structural maps of disease-related proteins as a starting point for drug design. Researchers gain insights into an envisioned drug’s ideal shape from a map of its protein target, like making a key from the lock it must fit.

  5. A massive task is set before John Fields: locating, photographing and archiving nearly 700 pieces of artwork in the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s permanent collection.The mission is to first chronicle each and every painting, drawing, sketch, print and sculpture, to develop an online catalog of all the works, available for viewing any time by students and the public. Fields is working on the project during the summer, while the gallery is closed. He first hangs the work level on a white wall, photographs it, then corrects and balances the electronic image before recording all the vital information — year it was created, artist, title, medium and other important details. He’s trained to photograph works behind glass, which can be difficult.
