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

6/19/14
Sleep disturbances are cardinal features of veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder. This randomized cross-over trial will examine two treatment options for sleep apnea among veterans.
6/19/14
African Americans have the highest colorectal cancer (CRC) incidence and mortality of any ethnic/racial group. This study aims to increase our understanding of factors which influence African Americans’ decisions about health care seeking and CRC screening behavior.

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

3/16/17
Studies explore environmental exposures in relation to morbidity and mortality, looking at both individuals who are occupationally exposed and others in the general population.
6/19/14
Our current clinical trial focuses on the effects of aspirin in gestation and reproduction.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

3/10/17
This study will determine if exercise intolerance in concussion patients is due to low cardiac output or changes in skeletal muscle metabolism.
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

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.
