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

6/19/14
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
People sometimes don’t know their risk for health problems. This study examines how not knowing your risk affects engaging in health behaviors to prevent health problems.

Epidemiology and Environmental Health

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.
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.

Exercise and Nutrition Sciences

10/17/17
This study will examine autonomic control of blood pressure in patients recently diagnosed with a concussion.
5/10/17
This project examines the effects of Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) on performance during topside operations at altitude and during diving at altitude. 

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.
