Kent State University Professor of Epidemiology, Dr. Melissa Zullo Kent State Epidemiologist Leads Study That Refutes Assumptions About Depression In Heart Attack Patients Studies have shown that people who suffer from depression are more likely to have heart disease or heart attacks in their lifetime. Worse still, similar research shows that heart patients who have depression face lower survival rates. For...

The team in Alaska is (left to right) Jonathan Mills, undergraduate geology major; Kiersten Duroe, geology M.S. candidate; Elizabeth Herndon, Ph.D., assistant professor of geology; and Lauren Kinsman-Costello, Ph.D., assistant professor of biology. Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, two Kent State University professors are researching climate change in Alaska. Elizabeth Herndon, Ph.D., and Lauren Kinsman-Costello, Ph.D., assistant professors from Kent State’s College of Arts and Sciences, spent a week in Fairbanks, Alaska, in June studying how climate change...

Gemma Casadesus-Smith, Ph.D., (center), an associate biology professor at Kent State, stands in a lab with two graduate students. For decades, biologists researching a cure for Alzheimer’s disease have remained in the dark almost as much as the ailment’s victims. A Kent State University professor, however, is looking to stop the disease before it starts. Gemma Casadesus-Smith, Ph.D., an associate biology professor in the College of Arts and Sciences, studies...

Yanhai Du (center), Kent State assistant professor in the College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology, teaches students about fuel cell technology. The basic concept of a fuel cell is simple – it converts chemical energy into electricity. To hear Kent State University Assistant Professor Yanhai Du, Ph.D., in the College of Applied Engineering, Sustainability and Technology tell it, however, the impact of modern and emerging fuel cell technology is anything but basic. Fuel cells have the...

Angela Ridgel, Ph.D., an associate professor of exercise science at Kent State University and an avid cyclist, has designed a bicycle specially tailored to Parkinson’s patients. Physical therapy is usually a component of treatment for patients of Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative and motor system disorders. Now, a Kent State University professor in the College of Education, Health and Human Services has designed a piece of equipment that serves that purpose and sets the bar for exercise therapy higher. ...
