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

6/24/15
Despite the commonly held belief that marijuana suppresses aggression, many cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys find positive associations between marijuana use and intimate partner violence (IPV).
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

7/5/18
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.
7/5/18
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

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

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.
