Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging
Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has re-launched a funding opportunity aimed at catalyzing and supporting research efforts of Canadian researchers to use available data from the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA).
The objective of this funding opportunity is to catalyze and support research efforts of Canadian researchers to use the available CLSA data.
This will lead to a better understanding on how individually and in combination the biological, medical, psychological, social, lifestyle and/or economic aspects of people's lives have an impact in both maintaining health and in the development of disease and disability as people age.
Space induces health changes similar to those of aging, such as cardiovascular and balance changes, weakening bones and muscles, disturbed sleep, isolation, and depressed immune response. Research into this data may provide clues to what is happening to astronauts in space.
The Canadian Space Agency has partnered with CIHR to support research using this Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging (CLSA) funding opportunity to understand and mitigate changes experienced by astronauts in space.
The funding opportunity is available on ResearchNet.
CSA encourages the Canadian health and biomedical community to submit proposals.
