Centre for Elder Research

We provide a unique environment for conducting applied research into areas of practical concern and immediate relevance to older adults and their families. We develop innovative approaches and creative interdisciplinary partnerships that focus on enhancing the lives of older Canadians.

Our team

At the Centre for Elder Research, we put our motto, from Lab to Life® into practice every day. This is possible only because of the many highly motivated and qualified members of our team, the dedicated members of our Advisory Board and our broad network of partners and supporters.
