Dr. Hommel's research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. His studies are primarily focused on the use of technology to promote self-management across chronic conditions, developing, testing (via randomized controlled trial), and optimizing behavioral treatments for nonadherence in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) as well as migraine headaches, and examining the effects of nonadherence on disease outcomes and health-related quality of life (HRQoL). He is a co-investigator on the PROTECT study, which is a multisite U01 study aimed at defining the rate of corticosteroid-free remission in pediatric patients with ulcerative colitis receiving standardized medical therapy. He also works with the Center for ADHD on a R18 project that involves building behavioral tools into an ADHD patient internet portal.

Dr. Hommel came to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center in 2008 from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He continues to collaborate with investigators at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
