Advancing aging research at the University of Waterloo

The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.
-Frank Lloyd Wright

Even in something as natural as aging, advancements in research and innovation can make the process smoother, improving the quality of life for older adults. In its 2013 Strategic Plan, the University of Waterloo identified an opportunity to become a leader in aging research. In 2014, the Network for Aging Research (NAR) was created  to expand the field of aging research and support aging-focused researchers.

The development of the NAR, as identified by the University’s Vice-President Academic & Provost, was a strategic and essential step toward advancing aging research. The NAR acts as a networking tool for aging-focused researchers, and fosters collaborative aging research across the university.
