HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - DNA data from hundreds of North Alabama children and their parents will soon be part of a major new genetic study of childhood diseases led by Huntsville's HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology and including the University of Alabama in Birmingham. The National Institutes of Health announced a $7.6 million research grant Tuesday to the non-profit institute for the study.

HudsonAlpha adds two faculty investigators

Drs. Sara and Greg Cooper are the newest members of the HudsonAlpha research team. The couple has been at the institute for about a month. 
“We are very happy to have successfully recruited Sara and Greg into two new faculty investigator positions at HudsonAlpha,” said Dr. Rick Myers, president and director of the institute. The Coopers performed postdoctoral training at the University of Washington at Seattle in two of the most prominent genetics and genomics laboratories in the country.
“They had opportunities to begin their independent faculty careers at several top institutions and we are proud they recognized HudsonAlpha and North Alabama as great places to participate in research and teaching,” added Myers.
