2014 Spring Benefit for Disorders of the Immune System

Are you healthy? How do you know?

Most of us know we are healthy by the way we feel. Typically, that same impulse lets us know if we are unhealthy.

But what if we could find out about diseases before they grow inside of us? This is the direction we are headed through ImmunoGenomics.

Immunogenomics is the application of DNA sequencing technologies and analysis of the human genome in order to understand the immune system and origins of disease.

HudsonAlpha's sixth annual Spring Benefit — Thursday, April 24 — will focus on disorders of the immune systems and ImmunoGenomics, one of biotech's most exciting and increasingly relevant fields.

2014 Double Helix Dash 5K to benefit childhood genetic disorders research

Double Helix Dash - 2013Runners, get ready for one of Huntsville's most unique races. HudsonAlpha will host the third annual Double Helix Dash 5K and 1-mile fun run on Tuesday, April 8, at 5:30 p.m.

The certified 5K course begins and ends on Genome Way in front of HudsonAlpha, winds through McMillian Park's distinctive double helix path, and extends into other points across Cummings Research Park. The 1-mile event also winds through McMillian Park.

"The support from the community for this race has been incredible," said Carter Wells, race director and vice president for advancement and economic development at HudsonAlpha. "We've had a strong turnout each of the first two years. It's a great event for individuals and families, whether they want to run, walk or simply spend an afternoon along McMillian Park. I hope everyone comes out to enjoy part of their day with us."

This program creates opportunities for underserved students to experience science and lab activities outside of the regular school day. Through the generous support of BBVA Compass Bank, more than 489 elementary and middle school students have participated in hands-on science activities. Activities have taken place at the institute, as well as Sci-Quest Hands-on Science Center.

2013 Spring Benefit brings attention to chilhood genetic disorders

HudsonAlpha will hold its fifth annual Spring Benefit on Thursday, April 25. Proceeds from the event will fund the institute's research on childhood genetic disorders.

Hope for young patients and their families lies at the intersection of HudsonAlpha research and the practice of Dr. Martina Bebin, a pediatric neurologist at North Alabama Children’s Specialists in Huntsville. Genetic conditions that affect growth, behavior, and cognition are common and pervasive; HudsonAlpha scientists are searching for answers.


Luncheon supports HudsonAlpha research

For a second year, Huntsville philanthropists Pennie and Tom Keene hosted a women's luncheon in support of HudsonAlpha. Donations from luncheon guests, which were supplemented by the Keenes and a matching gift from UBS Financial Services, will support research projects at HudsonAlpha.
