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

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

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.
6/19/14
Studies about diet, especially vitamin D, will provide insight regarding the role of nutrition in the etiology of age-related eye and periodontal diseases.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

10/17/17
This study will examine autonomic control of blood pressure in patients recently diagnosed with a concussion.
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

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.
