Core Facilities

Each department within the School of Public Health and Health Professions has its own discipline-specific research facilities as well as access to shared resources.

Rehabilitation Physiology Lab

The Rehabilitation Physiology Lab conducts research on a wide range of individuals, from healthy people, the elderly and those with different physical disabilities. Recent extramurally funded studies have included the quantitative assessment of physiological function and functional performance and the effects of specific exercise interventions on the elderly and patients with juvenile arthritis, osteoarthritis, multiple sclerosis and post-polio syndrome. Students from the University at Buffalo, as well as other universities, frequently participate in internships, fellowships and graduate work in the Rehab Physiology Lab.
