Professor Stolee leads a Canadian Frailty Network-funded project which is developing and testing approaches to strengthen primary care for older adults living with frailty. He is also a WorkPackage co-lead for the AGE-WELL Network of Centres of Excellence, conducting research on health system, policy and regulatory factors that can help or hinder technological innovation that could benefit older persons. Professor Stolee was the 2012 recipient of the Canadian Association on Gerontology Evelyn Shapiro Mentoring Award. He is the current Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal on Aging/La Revue canadienne du viellissement. He also directs the University of Waterloo Network for Aging Research.
