Dr. Natalie Ebner Receives 5-year R01 from NIA/NIH

Dr. Natalie Ebner recently received a 5-year R01 from the National Institute of Aging/NIH: Mechanisms of Oxytocin’s Analgesia in Older Adults.  This is a collaborative project between Psychology and the Department of Aging & Geriatric Research at UF. The project investigates the pain-relieving effects of oxytocin in older adults with chronic knee osteoarthritis; findings will speak to better pain management for this group.
