Led by Dr. Z. Hugh Fan, Ph.D., professor at the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering’s Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Dr. John Lednicky, Research Professor at the College of Public Health and Health Professions’ Department of Environmental and Global Health, an interdisciplinary team at the University of Florida has developed a game-changing diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 that is fast, reliable, low-cost and capable of differentiating between COVID-19 and influenza.
New UF research shows that a form of artificial intelligence combined with MRI scans of the brain has the potential to predict whether people with a specific type of early memory loss will go on to develop a form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study indicates there are “missed opportunities” for diabetes prevention in the U.S., UF researchers wrote in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
Research by Adam J. Woods, Ph.D., associate director of UF’s Center for Cognitive Aging and Memory, and collaborators using artificial intelligence to personalize transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) was highlighted in the Society for Neuroscience’s 2021 annual report.
University of Florida researchers have detected past instances of people becoming infected with a type of coronavirus that was until now thought only to be found in pigs.
The Mental Health, Epidemiology and Applied Statistics sections of the American Public Health Association have selected Linda B. Cottler, Ph.D., M.P.H., FACE, for the Rema Lapouse Award for Achievement in Epidemiology, Mental Health and Applied Public Health Statistics.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently awarded a $10 million grant to a team led by Rhoel Dinglasan to test why are some countries in the grip of COVID-19 while others appear less affected.
University of Florida researchers studying the use of a non-invasive brain stimulation treatment paired with cognitive training have found the therapy holds promise as an effective, drug-free approach for someday warding off Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
People who have recovered from a bout of severe COVID-19 may still have a reason for concern about their health. A new University of Florida study has found that patients who had a severe case of the disease were more than twice as likely as patients who had mild or moderate COVID-19 to need hospitalization again for health problems caused by COVID-19 complications.
A new University of Florida study finds that patients with COVID-19 who displayed symptoms of disorientation and confusion were three times more likely to go on to develop severe COVID-19 than patients with the virus who did not experience neurological symptoms.
