What We Do
As one of the thirteen Institutes of CIHR, the Institute of Aging shares responsibility for achieving the principal objectives of CIHR.
The Institute of Aging (IA) is dedicated to supporting research and building research capacity in the field of aging. More details on our research priorities can be found under Research, and in our Strategic Plan.
IA provides direct funding support for researchers in a number of ways including direct research grants, support for pilot projects, monthly awards for outstanding journal articles on aging, and annual awards for trainees, new investigators, and mid-career researchers.
In its short history, the IA has had some notable achievements, detailed in our Annual Reports.
The IA works hard to stay connected to our community. The IA also seeks out partnerships with other agencies with similar interests, in order to share knowledge, resources and expertise.
The CIHR Institute of Aging works closely with the CIHR Ethics Office to encourage the research community to address ethics in research on aging, which spans ethical issues and ethical impact of research, research translation and research outcomes related to older adults.
