Linda Cottler

Her research has focused on drug and alcohol use and dependence in vulnerable populations like injection drug users, criminal offenders, women and African-Americans. She has developed internationally recognized assessment tools for drug, alcohol and nicotine use and gambling. Dr. Cottler is also known for her innovative approach to community-based research.

Sean Forbes

Dr. Forbes’ research utilizes magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy to monitor the progression of disease and potential treatments in muscular dystrophies. His research incorporates a translational approach, and includes investigating the effects of gene therapies, pharmaceutical interventions, and exercise on skeletal and cardiac muscle composition and function. Currently, a primary…

Yueh-Yun Chi

Dr. Chi’s primary methodological research is currently focused on developing powerful statistical methods for design and analysis data with many outcomes. Applications include, but not limited to, microarray experiments, mass spectrometry and NMR metabolomic profiling and medical imaging studies.

Babette Brumback

Dr. Brumback’s recent methodological research investigates methods for causal inference with complex survey data. She has been particularly interested in methods for adjusting for unmeasured cluster-level confounding with complex sampling designs. This has led to the development of new methods stemming from conditional likelihood techniques, generalized linear mixed models, and…

David Fuller

Dr. Fuller’s research program is aimed at understanding how neuroplasticity in the brain and spinal cord influences the control of breathing. The overall hypothesis driving the work in Dr. Fuller’s laboratory is that appropriate induction of neuroplasticity has the potential to improve respiratory muscle control in cases of injury or…

Mark Bishop

Dr. Bishop’s research interests are in the management of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly pain, by conservative rehabilitation interventions like manual therapy. This work uses experimentally induced pain models and includes modalities such as quantitative sensory testing to measure pain sensitivity and central nervous system changes in response to interventions. This work…

Joel Bialosky

Dr. Bialosky’s research interests are primarily on the mechanisms of manual therapy in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. He is currently supported by the K12 Rehabilitation Research Career Development Program with a research program focused on 1) placebo mechanisms of manual therapy and 2) neuroplastic changes in pain associated with…

Robert Cook

Dr. Cook’s research involves factors associated with the spread of infectious diseases such as HIV infection and other sexually transmitted diseases. The majority of his research is focused on identifying and evaluation of new prevention strategies. His work spans several high-risk groups, including adolescents, substance abusers, and persons with HIV-related…

Lori Altmann

Dr. Altmann’s primary research investigates the interaction between cognitive ability and language use, with a focus on how disorders of executive function and working memory affect language production and comprehension. This research has investigated language use in various populations: healthy young and older adults, Alzheimer patients, adults with dyslexia, and…
