Robert Ader, Founder of Psychoneuroimmunology, Dies

Study Focuses on Trauma Care
Improving the care of trauma patients is an important priority, as traumatic injuries are the leading cause of death in patients younger than 45. In a recent study, Medical Center researcher Laurent Glance, professor of anesthesiology and of community and preventive medicine, looked at whether or not certain “best practices” are associated with better outcomes.

Nearby Stars May Be Older Than Previously Thought
