On Labor Day — an annual day dedicated to honoring the contributions that American workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country — we thought it fitting to revisit one very impressive physicist who began her revolutionary work right here in our back yard at University of Alabama at Birmingham. Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green’s 11 years of hard work, patience and perseverance in the lab developing her groundbreaking laser technology cancer treatment, which induces 100 percent tumor regression in mice, is a perfect example of why we celebrate Labor Day. **********   She was recently awarded a $1 million grant from the Veterans Affairs’ Office of Research & Development to take her findings to clinical trials. The young assistant professor at Atlanta’s Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Physiology is not your typical lab rat. She’s graceful and elegant in one moment, bubbly and playful the next — then she’s back in the lab, forging through the complexities of one of the most challenging diseases of our time. We are honored to welcome today’s FACE of Birmingham, Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green.
