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.

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

There are racial disparities in prostate cancer treatment, but the root causes of these disparities are unknown. Heather Orom, PhD, is exploring several possible explanations to help reduce racial gaps in prostate cancer mortality and patient treatment.

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

3/16/17
Faculty are involved in a number of studies investigating disease prevention. Studies examining how to prevent diarrheal disease, a major source of death of infants and children in developing economies, could have enormous health impacts.

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

5/10/17
This project examines the effects of Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) on performance during topside operations at altitude and during diving at altitude.

This study aims to determine the efficacy of face cooling to maintain blood pressure during simulated hemorrhage induced by lower body negative pressure.

Rehabilitation Science

2/24/17
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.
