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
This study will develop and initially test an intervention designed to help young adults who regularly use marijuana to reduce their intake.
12/19/17
To maximize its prevention potential, the public health impact of pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) requires an approach that will lead to: 1) large-scale adoption among eligible populations and 2) identification of current gaps among prescribers. 

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

3/16/17
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.
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.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

6/19/14
Caffeine is the most widely used psychoactive substance in the world and its use is increasing among children. Although considered safe, the majority of empirical data on the effects of caffeine have been collected in adults.
10/17/17
This study will examine autonomic control of blood pressure in patients recently diagnosed with a concussion.

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.
