Dr. Harver’s research program results from a blend of training and interests in experimental psychology, respiratory physiology, and pulmonary medicine. His work examines the perception of dyspnea and the impact of symptoms on the management of obstructive lung disease. He has published 2 books and over 60 book chapters and journal articles; and presented about 150 abstracts, talks, and workshops at regional, national, and international scientific meetings. He has consistently involved students at all levels – high school, undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral – in his research activities. Harver maintains keen interest in research ethics and scientific integrity; the university initially secured Federal-Wide Assurance for the Protection of Human Subjects in Research in 2001 during his term as Chair of the Institutional Review Board for Research with Human Subjects. A Faculty Associate with the Center for Professional and Applied Ethics since 2002, he currently serves as a campus mediator through the University Ombuds Office.
