Researchers invited to analyze Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) data

Canadian researchers from all research areas are invited to submit health research projects that make use of available CLSA data. The data, from over 50,000 Canadians, covers various aspects of people's lives, including biological, medical, psychological, social, lifestyle and economic aspects. The research projects should help us understand how these factors, taken individually and in combination, have an impact in both maintaining health and in the development of disease and disability as people age.

This funding opportunity is restricted to the currently available alpha numeric data available from the CLSA. The selected projects will help find ways to improve the health of Canadians by better understanding the aging process and the factors that shape the way we age.
