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
The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) was created by major national and international health agencies to improve the ability of countries to design, implement and evaluate anti-tobacco efforts.

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

2/2/16
This study will evaluate the effects of rehydration strategy on terrestrial performance and overnight recovery following immersion induced dehydration.  
3/10/17
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

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.
