Diarrheal diseases are the 2nd-leading cause of burden of disease worldwide, causing 72.8 million DALYs per year. Many of these cases of diarrheal disease occur in children under age 5. Importantly, repeated diarrheal disease in children can lead to stunting, a condition in which a child’s height...

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a progressing and fatal neuromuscular disease affecting 1 in 3500 boys. The molecular cause of DMD is lack of the protein dystrophin in skeletal muscle. Despite knowing the molecular cause and the cellular events that underlie this disease, there currently are...

This research aims to address waterpipe smoking, assess exposure to smoke emissions, and create standards for future testing. The project will set out to determine the variability in human waterpipe smoking topography, how waterpipe operating parameters impact the chemical and physical properties...

Taking into consideration that high levels of mGluR2/3 receptors are found in brain regions implicated in different aspects of drug abuse, it has been suggested that there is a possible role for mGluR2/3 in the development of drug dependence. Therefore, it has been postulated that changes in the...

UMCP investigators will identify exposome signatures (biomarkers) of a person working in a lab and using ferrets by analysis of blood, hair, skin and nasal swabs, and exhaled breath particles. Signatures will include an antibody profile against rare avian influenza indicative of vaccination rather...

This project seeks to develop a multidimensional measure of flavored little cigar and cigarillo (LCC) risk perceptions and test it’s association with intention to smoke flavored LCCs among a sample of racial and ethnically diverse young adult (aged 18-34) cigarette smokers. Study methods include:...
