Research Highlights

Our faculty researchers are investigating critical health issues, including maternal and child health, substance use and abuse, aging, assistive technology and the epidemiology of chronic diseases such as cancer.

Biostatistics

9/16/16
Using bivariate analysis of Galc and PSY, we will develop a new paradigm aimed at early and accurate prediction of EIKD.
6/27/18
This project focuses on the preparation and writing of a book that will reflect a growing need for rigorous systematic presentations of classical and novel empirical likelihood (EL) approaches and their applications in biomedicine and health.

Community Health and Health Behavior

12/2/15
Operation: SAFETY is a longitudinal research study which will examine the health and well-being of U.S. Army Reserve/National Guard Soldiers and their partners.
6/24/15
Despite the commonly held belief that marijuana suppresses aggression, many cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys find positive associations between marijuana use and intimate partner violence (IPV).

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

7/5/18
Studies about diet, especially vitamin D, will provide insight regarding the role of nutrition in the etiology of age-related eye and periodontal diseases.
7/5/18
Studies explore environmental exposures in relation to morbidity and mortality, looking at both individuals who are occupationally exposed and others in the general population.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

3/10/17
This study aims to determine the efficacy of face cooling to maintain blood pressure during simulated hemorrhage induced by lower body negative pressure.
3/10/17
This study will determine if exercise intolerance in concussion patients is due to low cardiac output or changes in skeletal muscle metabolism.

Rehabilitation Science

6/29/18
The Virtual Group Exercise at Home (V-GEAH) randomized controlled trial, funded by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), was completed. The results of the V-GEAH study was published in the Gerontology and Geriatrics: Research in summer 2016.
5/25/17
The Rehabilitation Physiology Lab at the University at Buffalo conducts research on a wide range of individuals, from elderly adults to those with different physical disabilities.
