Ongoing Research Support

 

“Research and Mentoring on Swallowing Impairment and Respiratory-Swallow Coordination”

The primary goal of this project is to provide educational and career development opportunities and mentorship structure to support patient oriented researchers as they transition into the early stages of an academic career in the study of swallowing and respiratory swallowing impairment.

Role on Project: Principle Investigator
 

“Infrastructure Development for a Randomized Clinical Trail on Dysphagia Outcomes”

The primary goal of this project is to develop a data infrastructure system to support the first multi-site RCT that will test the effect of a standardized assessment & targeted treatment approach on swallowing & health outcomes in dysphagic veterans following stroke.

Role on Project: Principle Investigator

 

“Standardization of Swallowing Assessment in Bottle-fed Children”

The primary goal of this project is to develop and test a standardized method of physiologic assessment of swallowing impairment in bottle-fed infants.

Role on Project: Multiple Principle Investigators

 

“Respiratory-Swallow Training in Veterans with Oropharyngeal Cancer”

The primary goal of this award is to assess the impact of a novel treatment intervention on the swallowing function of veterans with dysphagia that exhibit non-optimal respiratory-swallow phase patterns following treatment for oropharyngeal cancer.

Role on Project: Principal Investigator

 

“Respiratory Phase Training Effects on Swallow Impairment in Oropharyngeal Cancer”

The primary goal of this award is to assess the impact of a novel treatment intervention on the swallowing function of oropharyngeal cancer patients with dysphagia that exhibit non-optimal respiratory-swallow phase patterns.

Role on Project: Principal Investigator
