In addition to their teaching, our health sciences and public health faculty engage in a wide range of research activities related to the health of populations. There are five broad areas of research that comprise the work of faculty.
Addressing global public health issues through interdisciplinary research in resource-constrained settings and translating findings into real-world practice.
Studying the health impact of nutrition and predictors of nutritional status and working to improve Black maternal health and neonatal, child, and adolescent wellbeing.
Analyses to inform state health policy, transform health systems, and improve population health and development and evaluation of theory-based interventions to change health behaviors.
Exploring clinical biomechanics, prehabilitation and rehabilitation and other topics across the lifespan, and educational research on clinical training
Using quantitative research approaches to study cancer, environmental, infectious disease, and geo-spatial epidemiological and projects focused on clinical and population health informatics.
