Dr. Rosianna Gray

Historically Black Stillman College in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, has announced the establishment of the Chronic Disease Research and Training Shared Facility on campus. It will serve as the college’s first facility dedicated entirely to research. The facility will enhance institution-wide research programs and facilitate collaborations with research-intensive partners to transform the college’s science department into one that develops relevant research programs, building upon existing biomedical pipeline initiatives.

Yolanda Page, president of Stillman College, noted “not only will the funding create a space for life-saving research, but it will also allow Stillman to fulfill its mission to contribute to improving lives all over Alabama.”

President Page has selected Stillman alumna Rosiana Gray to lead the Stillman Chronic Disease Research and Training Shared Facility effort. Dr. Gray was a biology major during her time as a Stillman student. Dr. Gary has been serving a associate provost for instructional development and director of Center For Teaching and Learning at the college. She holds a master’s degree in biology and a Ph.D. in cellular and molecular biology from the University of Alabama

The new center is being funded by a $7.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
