At MIRA, we examine biological, behavioural, technological and environmental factors that affect how people age. Our approach is interdisciplinary, and we combine the following strategies:
- A coordinated, collaborative research agenda between academics and clinicians from all faculties.
- The use of design thinking to generate human-centred solutions.
- Ongoing interaction with a diverse group of stakeholders, such as policymakers and older adults.
Research at the McMaster Institute for Research on Aging is intended to generate solutions that are practical, readily implemented, and that promote aging in place.
