MIRA Funding Opportunities
**PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT RELATED TO COVID-19**
If you have questions about the continuation of research, please see McMaster University's COVID-19 research directives. Researchers needing extensions for their MIRA and Labarge research projects as a result of COVID-19 should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) provides funding to support interdisciplinary research on aging led by McMaster researchers from across all six McMaster Faculties. Within MIRA, the Labarge Centre for Mobility in Aging (LCMA) supports research focused on understanding and improving mobility in aging, which encompasses physical, community and social mobility. Applicants are encouraged to incorporate end-users, including older adults, care providers, and other stakeholders into their research. See a sample of funded projects below:
MIRA trainee funding
MIRA and LCMA also provides funding and support to McMaster trainees in aging research. This includes undergraduates, Master's students, PhD students, and postdoctoral fellows. In addition to funding, MIRA supports trainees through the MIRA Trainee Network. Trainees submitting proposals to work with MIRA-funded researchers or projects must include details on how their proposed work will complement the funded project. Additional funding for trainees may be available through co-funded awards with our partners. See a sample of funded projects below:
