This past month’s Bham Now BOLD speaker and UAB Polar and Marine Biology Professor Jim McClintock was featured in al.com yesterday, detailing his upcoming 24th and 25th journeys to Antarctica in 2017
Written by al.com’s environmental reporter Dennis Pillion, the profile describes McClintock’s future research efforts in Antarctica which may prove useful for people suffering from cancer to antibiotic resistant infections.
The article also recognizes fellow polar researchers Chuck Amsler, a marine algae and seaweed specialist at UAB, and Bill Baker, a chemist from the University of South Florida. McClintock called himself and his fellow researchers the “Three Musketeers.”
