Welcome to the Swallowing and Communication Physiology Exploration (SCoPE) Lab! We strive to enhance the understanding of how individuals eat, swallow, and communicate to further the development of diagnostic and intervention protocols. Current research is focusing on individuals with cancer, however we also investigate a breadth of populations and ages. Along with physiology, the SCoPE Lab is heavily focused on a holistic view including quality of life. Our mission is to advocate for research, education, and awareness.
