A distinguished professor of political science at the University at Buffalo has published his latest Seats-in-Trouble projection in the journal PS: Political Science and Politics. James Campbell says indications point to as many as 44 seats moving to the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections, shifting control of the House in their favor.
A new study from the University at Buffalo has shown that the presence of new or worsened bedsores is an effective indicator of the quality of care for rehab patients. The study is the first to examine whether this metric is, in fact, is associated with outcome of care in inpatient rehabilitation settings.
Lucia Leone and her team will expand their successful Veggie Van project by helping organizations across the Northeast and Southeast start mobile produce markets using the Veggie Van model.
Reproductive hormones that develop during puberty are not responsible for changes in social behavior that occur during adolescence, according to the results of a newly published study by a University at Buffalo researcher.
“Changes in social behavior during adolescence appear to be independent of pubertal hormones. They are not triggered by puberty, so we can’t blame the hormones,” says Matthew Paul, an assistant professor in UB’s Department of Psychology.
The absence of TTP, a protein critical to the control of inflammation, may lead to rapid and severe bone loss, according to a new study led by the University at Buffalo.
Expressive autobiographical writing is similar to journaling, but isn’t necessarily a long-term endeavor. It helps organize thoughts, aids in the search for meaning and can place events within a life’s context – and there are documented health benefits that can accompany how this contributes to a writer’s psychological well-being.
But the practice isn’t always constructive and a University at Buffalo researcher has published a new study in the journal Personality and Individual Differences that …
Neglect accounts for the majority of all child protection cases in the United States, yet child welfare workers lack effective assessment tools for identifying the associated risk and protective factors of chronic neglect. The ineffective assessments are often the result of using instruments that are not specifically designed to include elements predicting chronic neglect, according to a new study by a University at Buffalo research team.

In fact, the research findings published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences suggest that one form of social withdrawal, referred to as unsociability, is no…
A new vaccine under development provoked an immune response to 72 forms of the bacteria that’s responsible for pneumonia, sepsis and meningitis. That’s up from the 23 forms of bacteria covered by current immunizations. The new vaccine, which represents the “most comprehensive” coverage of pneumococcal disease to date, could greatly reduce the number of deaths from the disease.
There has been little research on end-of-life decision-making for the growing population of older Americans with intellectual disabilities.
Through a series of interviews with five different emergency medical service agencies in upstate New York, UB researchers asked EMS providers specifically how pre-hospital orders shape what they do in the case of someone with an intellectual disability.
Adding or removing water from a stem cell can change the destiny of the cell to either pre-fat cells or pre-bone cells, researchers have discovered in a new study published in PNAS.
Satellite data shows underground water reserves in California’s Silicon Valley rebounded quickly after the recent severe drought. The research points to the success of aggressive conservation measures and lays the groundwork for low-cost monitoring of subterranean water reserves around the world.
Forget fingerprint computer identification or retinal scanning. A University at Buffalo-led team has developed a computer security system using the dimensions of your heart as your identifier.
The system uses low-level Doppler radar to measure your heart, and then continually monitors your heart to make sure no one else has stepped in to run your computer.
The technology will be presented next month at the 23rd Annual International Conference on Mobile Computing and Communication.
