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

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).
12/19/17
The prevention of HIV acquisition has been transformed over the last decade with the introduction of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), in which at-risk HIV uninfected individuals take antiretroviral medications daily to prevent infection. 

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

7/5/18
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.
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

2/2/16
This study will evaluate the effects of rehydration strategy on terrestrial performance and overnight recovery following immersion induced dehydration.  
10/18/17
This study will examine how changes in both water temperature and breathing gases influence autonomic activity during head out water immersion.

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.
