Research

The major research focus of the CDE department is directed toward describing and understanding the etiology of important diseases and disorders.

Ongoing research projects include:

  • Energy balance, risk of breast cancer and prognosis after breast cancer; investigating the complex roles of diet and physical activity
  • Folate, One-carbon metabolism and risk of colorectal and renal cancers
  • Prognostic importance of low social support and changes in social support for patient-centered outcomes after acute myocardial infarction
  • Nicotine Dependence: Psychiatric Co-occurrence and Impact on Quality of life
  • Noninvasive Measurement of Carotenoids in Human skin as a Biomarker of Fruit and Vegetable intake
  • Race Differences in the Eligibility for and receipt of carotid endarterectomy
  • Substance Abuse, HIV Infection, Medication Adherence and Mortality among a cohort of Aging US Veterans
  • Molecular Prognostic Markers in Cutaneous Malignant Melanoma
  • Effects of Demand and Control at Work on Depression and Ischemic Heart Disease Claims in a Heavy Industrial cohort
  • Exploring mechanisms potentially underlying racial/ethnic disparities in HIV and other Sexually transmitted infections using population-based data
  • Potential mediators of the relationship of late life job loss on health outcomes
  • Future expectations and adolescent sexual risk
  • Mobile technology as a tool to improve healthcare delivery
  • Maternal Health conditions and developmental delays in children: risks and health disparities for children in New York City
