Dear Friends, Colleagues and Students of Lewis University,

Welcome to the Colonel Stephen S. and Lyla Doherty Center for Aviation and Health Research website!  The Doherty Center is a research center at Lewis University that promotes scholarship among faculty, students, and community partners in the areas of aviation and health.

The Doherty Center funds research and scholarly initiatives; encourages partnerships among the University, its students and the community; provides opportunities for research experiences for students with faculty mentors.  Investigators supported by the Doherty Center have focused on areas such as: cardiac therapy, wound management, flight deck laser illumination, the environment, diabetes, MRSA, and alternative fuels for aviation.

We encourage you to search our site for research topics that interest you or investigator profiles that highlight their work, by selecting the appropriate task bars.  We also have information about funding your faculty and student research.
