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.
9/16/16
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

6/19/14
This project will examine the impact of prenatal exposure to cigarettes on a child’s development of self-regulation—the ability to modulate emotions and behave in socially appropriate ways.
6/19/14
People sometimes don’t know their risk for health problems. This study examines how not knowing your risk affects engaging in health behaviors to prevent health problems.

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

5/15/15
Projects focus on better understanding the factors related to the causation of cancer. For example, a study of African American families with a history of breast cancer will add to our understanding of the genetics of this disease and potentially lead to preventive measures.
3/16/17
Researchers are examining physiological and psychological measures of stress in police officers to evaluate potential associations of these measures with early signs of cardiovascular and metabolic disease.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

3/10/17
This study will use multiple levels of analysis to determine mechanisms by which amylin, a pancreatic-and-brain-derived peptide, acts in the mesolimbic reward system of the brain to reduce body weight and decrease food intake.
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

2/24/17
Dedicated to the promotion of health and independent living among older adults and their caregivers through research.
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.
