The Centre for Studies in Aging and Health (CSAH) plays a leadership role in multiple research and knowledge exchange projects in partnerships with other research and innovation organizations in aging and health across Ontario. In the last five years, CSAH has generated over 1.5 million dollars in funding and has actively collaborated on other projects involving over two million dollars. Through early researcher funding CSAH has been able to support and promote new engagement of several upcoming researchers in aging and health.
CSAH is pleased to spotlight some of the emerging regional, provincial and national research and publications related to aging.
