University of Wisconsin-Madison and William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital
Nicole Rogus-Pulia, PhD, CCC-SLP is an assistant professor in the departments of Medicine and Surgery and affiliate faculty in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Additionally, she is the director of the Swallowing Research Program in the Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital as well as director of the multi-site Veteran Health Administration’s (VHA) Intensive Dysphagia Treatment (ID) clinical program. The goal of Rogus-Pulia’s research program is to systematically identify and characterize factors underlying dysphagia in older adults and translate these findings into novel, evidence-based treatments for prevention of pneumonia onset. Her specific research interests include the effects of tongue strengthening on swallow function and health status, the impact of altered salivary production on swallowing, and the design of interventional studies for dysphagia in patients with dementia. Rogus-Pulia has grant funding from the VHA, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation, and the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) to support this work.
