These articles share some views on science, research and funding in the current climate (n.b. may be heavy reading. Recommend checking back in with @LegoAcademics between articles):

To help design cars for older occupants, Ford is using a suit that tries to make the wearer feel 20 to 40 years older by simulating problems like visual impairment, joint stiffness and weight gain.

On bereavement in older adults, “How a broken heart can kill the elderly” (The Telegraph)

Concerned about equitable access to essential medicines, particularly opioid analgesia? Read “The Global Commission on Drug Policy: A new report with a focus on medicines!” from @painpolicy

If you’d like more reading for your weekend, check out the #PalCareCongress feed from the 20th International Congress on Palliative Care that wraps up in Montreal today (including tweets from @palliverse by our own Chi Li)

Please share any good reads in the comments.
