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

12/19/17
In the last decade, the HIV prevention field has witnessed a distinct shift, with emphasis on biomedical strategies to supplement behavioral interventions. One of these approaches is the use of preexposure prophylaxis (PrEP), co-formulated antiretroviral medications taken to reduce the risk of HIV infection.
6/19/14
This study will develop and initially test an intervention designed to help young adults who regularly use marijuana to reduce their intake.

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

7/3/18
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.
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

4/2/18
This project will determine the magnitude of increases in core body temperature or reductions in body fluids incurred in a warm and humid disabled Pressurized Rescue Module scenario at sea level and at depth (20 feet of seawater) for up to 24 hours.
3/10/17
This study will investigate the role of the carotid body chemoreceptors in ventilatory control during hyperbaric exposures when blood oxygen content is elevated.

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.
