Activities and Updates

Akinwuntan and Devos from LARRS presented on driving simulation for drivers with medical conditions at the annual Transportation Research Board Conference.

Jamie Myers, Abiodun Akinwuntan, and Hannes Devos were awarded the KU Cancer Center Pilot Grant for their study "Task-Evoked Pupillary Response: Assessment of Cognitive Effort for Breast Cancer Survivors"

Hannes Devos and Katie Siengsukon received research funding from the Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science to study eye metrics of cognitive fatigability and sleepiness in multiple sclerosis.

Melike Kahya, a student in the doctoral program in rehabilitation science, has been awarded a full-time training stipend in the Kansas Training Program in Neurological and Rehabilitation Sciences, an Institutional Training Program funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Melike Kahya has been selected as an awardee of a Mabel A. Woodyard Fellowship in Neurodegenerative Disorders. This fellowship will provide her $30,000 support for tuition, research expenses, and academic traveling.
