In 1998, Daemen College established its first Natural Health and Sciences Research Center. This center was made possible through the support from The George I. Alden Trust and The Edward J. Kavanaugh Foundation, and The James H. Cummings Foundation. The Centers researchers have been awarded funding from Advanced Hyperbaric Technologies, Gaymar Industries, Eastman Kodak Company, The James R. Hayward Research Fund, The National Science Foundation, and the New York Physical Therapy Association Research Designated Fund.
In 2005, Daemen College formally established The Center for Wound Healing Research. Daemen College was awarded $925,000 from the U.S. Department of Defense, Army Medical Research & Material Command (USAMRMC) for a research project titled, Identification of Biomarkers Associated with the Healing of Chronic Wounds.
In 2008, Daemen was awarded a grant of $857,000 from the U.S. Army Material Command. Roswell Park Cancer Institute and University at Buffalo are collaborators on this grant.
