Glenn Fujiura, PhD

Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies
Department of Disability and Human Development
Center Director
Center on Epidemiology and Demography of Disability

Dr. Fujiura's research interests converge on the use of demographics and epidemiology as policy analysis tools in disability. Recent work focuses on issues of poverty, risk, family policy, the intersection of race and ethnicity and disability, and on the statistical surveillance of disability. Current major projects include a NIDRR research and demonstration project on demographic trends and emerging risks in disablement and an epidemiological study of disablement in the third world using data from the World Bank. He has worked extensively in both the creation of large national data sets in mental retardation and developmental disabilities, and in the secondary analysis of national statistical surveillance systems. He was a 1999 recipient of the National Rehabilitation Association's Switzer Scholar award, and has just completed an appointment to the President's Committee on Mental Retardation.
