Most senior drivers – nearly 90% – do not make inexpensive adaptations to their vehicles that can improve safety and prolong their time behind the wheel, according to new research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Seniors 65 and older are more than twice as likely as younger drivers to be killed when involved in a crash.

A multi-disciplinary team of researchers with expertise in biology, anesthesiology, pharmacology, and medicinal chemistry at U of U Health received a grant from the Department of Defense to identify new, natural compounds to develop non-opioid drugs for pain management. The approximately $10 million grant will be distributed over four years.
The study, which is collaboration between researchers from King's, Imperial College London and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, also shows that most people born prematurely have completely normal dopamine levels. The study was published in the eLife.
