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

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

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
